About

Graduated from college at the age of 12 with a double masters in Molecular Biology, specializing in the effects of phakopsora pachyrhizi on asian soybeans in non-indigenous continental U.S. + Northern Renaissance Art History, but opted out of scientific endeavors or antiquarian commentary in order to open up a light bulb manufacturing company (mostly halogen) in India at 19. Though after wearing lehenga cholis grew tediously uninspiring, seeing as I’d given up touring (classical pianist child prodigy) years before, sought out a PhD in neoclassical composition (particularly the ever popular silent symphonies for dogs) as well as opened up a culinary school for wayward vegan orphans. Pretty effin' dull. Huh. Okay. More like seasoned Creative Director (integrated art + copy), Crossword Puzzle Constructor, Writer, Charity Founder, llustrator, Paper Engineer, Music Supervisor, Event Producer, former Pro Classical Ballet Dancer, independently-motivated, detail-oriented, friendly, freelance hybrid. Especially keen on branding assignments, those involving science, music, social justice, the environment, the arts or meaningful non-profit, long-term gigs which will keep me busy for several months or more, wordsmithian ops plus collaborative efforts with fellow Renaissance types who've never squealed, "You must have too much time on your hands!" ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Would also happily consider full-time staff ops (for the first time in 8 years!) Especially positions in beautiful, outdoorsy, temperate locales near rivers, lakes or ocean waves, e.g. Portland, Maine or Portland, Oregon...where a couple hundred thousand smackers will nab one a permanent h-o-u-s-e (versus a temporary closet), with room for a tire swing and a sea o' sunflowers. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ In short, open to challenges of all varieties. Please say hello! : )
