Summary

I am a writer, hoping to offer my services to any publication I feel I would be suitable for. My area of expertise is writing reviews and critiques for movies and television programmes but I am able to write about most other subjects that may arise if I know enough about it. I am also adept at most creative efforts made with computers, like graphic design and artwork. I look forward to a job where I can successfully utilise my writing and other techniques to their fullest.
