    Photo Editor and Graphic Designer

    United States - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 15

    I have a lot of skills in a variety of areas. Many depending on creative problem solving and communication and the study of social interaction developing from the two. I feel a deep commitment to education and social development in new and inclusive ways. Since there are lasting effects from my stem cell transplant for my leukemia that make "normal" ways of holding employment difficult. I've been able to apply the skills learned from my life in international and urban environments to pioneer my home based businesses and be able to participate in local organizations and development that I believe in. I'm really excited to continue this journey and see what's next.
