Other
I have used journalism as a means for turning words into food for most of my adult life; however, my skills have also been applied to advertising, teaching and editing. My passion for poetry affords me the social knowledge to create a voice suitable for any publication. During my time in South Korea I used my skills in journalism and marketing to cover, promote and expose events, venues and hidden vacation spots. For the past year I've done this in Taiwan, and I might just stay a while.
Freelancer Availability
I freelance full-time. I am willing to travel anywhere. I have a driver's license. I have access to a car.
