Skills for Hire

If you know me already, then you know I'm a bit of a polymath. I have a varied array of interests into which I delve.

The economy being what it is, and being presently underemployed, I thought I would put up a self-promotional summary of my profitable skillset. Please contact me if you would like assistance in any of these areas. My rates are reasonable and negotiable.
