I am absolutely in love with writing and the crafting of interesting words to form sentences that roll off the tongue. I was published in the area of poetry in grade school, later in college in journalism, I continued to write product reviews for Google after college. I am great with computers, installing them, and have some experience repairing and restoring them, running maintenance, and debugging them. I can operate: Microsoft Office, Windows, Excel, Powerpoint, Adobe, Media Player, Live Movie Maker. I enjoy creating movies in my spare time, but my main interest is creating the soundtracks for movies. I can also operate most Mac Systems. I am a Licensed Chauffeur. I have worked in retail for several years, first as a service clerk, I was then made into an assistant in cosmetics, then promoted to a Lead Department Supervisor in Cosmetics, and then cross-trained in the pharmacy. Working for Google has taught me a great deal about targeting a specific audience and learning to speak their language in order to create more traffic, learning about their likes and dislikes and how to promote and sell off those areas of interests, and learning which popular networking sites are the most valuable usage of my time to generate the most income. Marketing and Advertising is a very fast paced and interesting position that I enjoyed very much. Most positions I've accepted have involved lite-demanding clerical work.
Marketing and Advertising Placement/Product Review Journalist
2011 to 2012
Constant computer usage, It was my job to locate free samples and new products using the internet, I tried them and wrote reviews on the products I've tried. I also had to find similar or competing advertisers and place them on the website in the areas of the page they would sell or be clicked most. I had to research my audience type to figure out what this they would buy or try most so that they would keep coming back to the website and tell their associates to gain growth for the site. I had to translate the site to other languages once it was big enough to go international. I kept track of my banking and earnings, read tables and charts to figure out how to increase traffic throughout the week and month.

One of my solo duties was to clearance and price-down all the items leaving the system in every department, using the Telxon or the AS400.
