    I have two years of freelance experence in a variety of subjects and genres.

I enjoy a challenge, and I will do the necessary research to provide a quality finished product. I am working hard to build my reputation as an energetic freelancer that tries to exceed the project expectation. If you would like to see what I can do before hiring me for a big project, I am more than willing to discuss a much smaller test run.
