External Profile

Short Autobiography

I've been training to be a storyteller unofficially since I was very young. Visual, written word, and spoken word methods of telling others my stories has always been a fun and free way expressing myself. I love to draw, design, write, and literally spend hours just coming up with ideas for characters, plots, and worlds. When I was younger, I believed that I wanted to be an animator. Now that I'm older and growing more experienced and knowledgeable in the world my concept of a long term career has shifted.

I want to be a producer and a production manager. I want to help organize, plan, and push creative projects whether for T.V., film, video games, animations, or at a publishing house. My goals are to first understand what the jobs of the creator is so that I might have a kind of empathy for the people I work with in the future. Don't get me wrong, I love story telling. I've just learned that there are those out there that are better suited for the task.

Does this mean I've given up on story telling? Lord no! I still want to write and draw my own stories like every other entertainment loving fool out there. I have plans on getting a short independent reader series of mine published just like most of you. I simply want to manage and organize even more than that. Being a producer is my big career dream! That doesn't mean I don't want to recognized as a good writer or artist.

So, in order to help me improve as a storyteller, I would like all of you to take the time to read ad review at least one chapter of anything on my page. Honest feedback gives me a chance to improve on my work and positive feedback boost my optimism and helps me keep working! I'd also like to get links to some of your pieces.
