In addition to the training my major provided me I have the training of my Studio Art minor.

I have a working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Dreamweaver and Adobe Illustrator. All of which are fantastic for publication, advertisement/promotional material and event materials (invitation, place markers, etc.).

    Writer, blogger and ESL instructor

    Canada - Last active: 11 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

    Blessed is the person who finds a straight path in life. For most, it is a road full of twists and turns. Blessed is the person who can see his destination from journey's start. For most, it is a place beyond many mountains and forests. I graduated with a degree in Environmental Sciences. I once met a man who asked me if I stood in front of bulldozers to protect trees. That's what he thought my degree was worth. While I've never protested the clearing of a forest, I have worked as an environmental scientist, for the government, for private consultants, for universities, and NGOs. My years as an environmental scientist were informative and insightful. Informative, in that I learned much about the industry. Insightful, in that I learned much about myself. I learned what put a smile on my face, what sped my heart, and what had me up late at night: writing. Since then, I have been many other things. I have been an editor and a writer for a magazine, a freelance editor, a blogger, and an ESL tutor. Most recently, I have been an English teacher at a primary school. I have taught Chinese children that "how's it going?"​ is a phrase of greeting, akin to "how are you?"​ and should never be answered with "I'm going to the toilet."​ I have taught them that "the sky"​ is an endearing answer to "what's up?"​ only until the age of ten. Beyond simple job titles though, I consider myself to be a storyteller first. And this is my story. So I ask you to consider this, dear reader: if you took 2 minutes of your time to read my story, if you paused on this tab from the half a dozen you have opened to finish this passage, if the words on this page compelled your mind to move from one to the next, understand what you have done: you have just acknowledged the power of stories. The power of words. And these are the power of my words. Contact me if you're looking for a freelance writer or editor. Below is a profile of my previous work: Thank you.
