I am an artist and writer at heart. Coupling that with my driving desire to make sure everything looks neat and professional, I have obtained an Associate of Arts degree in Graphic Design and have worked through a training course on the skills of proofreading (for which I already had strong tendencies since school days). For over a decade, I have used both graphic design and editing/proofreading in my previous job, for volunteer projects in my community, and for family and friends. I have been freelancing full time since 2018, and I particularly look forward to the opportunity to work together with fellow believers.
