Drawing

I ran and taught in a community art studio for ten years. In college, I took so many art classes that I almost double majored. I also made a living as a muralist for 4 years, and draw everyday in my own studio.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I have a minor in communications with an emphasis on public speaking. I have served as the spokesperson for several organizations and know how to write persuasive, or expository speeches, the importance of facts and statistics, as well as the importance of inflection and pauses. I have lectured at the university level, debated on TV, and testified to the state legislature. I am a storyteller and am quite adept at presenting the story, need, facts, and summary as an argument for taking action.
