Portfolio

I am pleased to share the following samples of my writing and editing work. Several also illustrate my skill with graphic design. These pieces demonstrate my outstanding talents as a powerful writer, a diligent editor, and a skilled content presenter.

SCRIPT WRITING

A few years ago, I was fortunate to get the opportunity to write the script for a recruitment video for an online gaming guild. The above video is the final result. In addition to writing the script, I also did the storyboarding and narration.

Since then, I have completed a year-long scriptwriting program and written an original TV pilot, a short film and a full-length feature, a couple of short plays, as well as a short comic script, "Time and Sand." (link contains three versions of the comic illustrated by different artists)

Additional script samples are available upon request.

CREATIVE FICTION

Spine Online chose several pieces of my creative fiction to publish on their site. While these short stories remain published, I will keep the links available as part of my portfolio.

NARRATIVE NON-FICTION

I recently donated a kidney. I wrote a short feature story, per a newspaper feature, about the experience. I wrote it as if distanced from the proceedings, merely an observer of both parties.

GRAPHIC DESIGN AND CONTENT CREATION

BRANDING

The above image is a poetry poster I created in order to publish my uniquely formed poems. Several of my poetry posters are published online.

I created a 4-page movie review magazine spread as an assignment during my professional writer’s program. It demonstrates a variety of my skills: strong content writing with the review copy, exceptional editing capabilities in editing the content, and an understanding of market appropriate content layout and graphic design with the presentation. 

I created the SRM Creative brand.

I designed everything from business cards, custom letterhead and promotional bookmarks, to this web site.

 

I used my personal philosophies about writing to carefully craft the logo and slogan. The bold colours and simple layout reflect my personality and style. Inspiration for the colour scheme came from my home's interior decor.

The brand is appropriate for all the endeavours that SRM Creative engages in. After all, everything tells a story, doesn't it?

BUSINESS CONTENT WRITING

Grant proposals are key in many sectors. The following sample cover letters, for fictitious proposals, demonstrate my ability to capture the essentials in an engaging and succinct manner.
