Side projects

I've recently spent time working on a personal writing project-- my own YA novel about a high school girl and her dog written in alternating perspectives from the girl and dog. I've also had a personal blog at: http://64colorcrayons-blog.tumblr.com/

Ideal team

I'm comfortable working with teams ranging from small to large, and also comfortable working on my own. I believe on-going, effective communication between clients and team members leads to the most positive results for all involved with the project.
