I have a degree in Business and Economics and work part time doing cost projections, accounting, process streamlining and assisting the administration of a large janitorial company in San Salvador, El Salvador. I excel at writing down processes and business plans, and I'm helping the aforementioned company implement procedures under the ISO 9001 norm. I'm well adept at using MS Excel, Access, and Visio as tools for my work. I'm also trilingual: I know English, Spanish, and French, with knowledge of basic Mandarin as well (it's a work in progress). Languages are a passion, so I often tutor friends/acquaintances wanting to learn Spanish/English in my free time and enjoy translating in general. Studying for my degree and taking courses in photography, culinary arts, gardening, and music in English, Spanish, and French has expanded my vocabulary in these three languages, enabling me to be a fast and accurate translator, with impeccable writing style (I use Strunk & White for English). As a curious fact about me, I enjoy classical music (opera) and have been training almost 4 years to sing it. So I'm also up for the odd singing or voice-over job.

If you need something to be written, particularly something funny or entertaining, I can guarantee it in advance. I work fast and I accept nothing less than my best. I can produce comedy in any form- I write news articles, scripts for sitcoms, films, and short films, websites, etc. I'm also one of the top 5 greatest actors of all-time; most of the voices in that video next to this are mine. There's also a V.O. reel, as well as two editing ones, in my portfolio. I spent two years in Hollywood pursuing comedy writing. In the spring of 2012 I won Best Comedy at the 10th annual DIY Film Festival for a film I made 100% on my own (played every part, was the entire crew). In the past two years, I've published something like 55 videos that've gotten in excess of 20 million views (I've lost track). I do everything for these videos except for the animating. I write the scripts, find the actors, direct them, do my own voice acting (make my wife do voice work, as well), edit the audio, direct my animators (who live in 3rd world countries), edit their animations, and voila- an animation made for a few hundred bucks that 100k people will see in the first month. I wish I didn't have to be a one-man crew (minus the animating), but my standards are too high for amateurs, and professionals are just that- professionals working in the industry (not for freelancers with small, per-episode budgets like me). So, yeah- hire me and whatever it is you need, I'll exceed your expectations. Because if I don't exceed yours, then I haven't met my own. I'm internally motivated- my motivation comes from within. I don't work to get paid, I work to accomplish my goal, which is for my work to blow you away. It's like giving someone a Christmas gift and seeing their eyes light up when they open it- you're like, "yes! Nailed it!" If you get my work and are like, "yeah, this'll do," that's devastating- I want to see those eyes light up and know I nailed it. Oh, and I'm also good at over-explaining stuff. Meaning, I tend to explain more than is necessary to get the point across. In other words, so much explaining that it goes over the amount of explaining that was necessary.
