Portfolio of Work

It took a few months, but I finally built a better section to showcase my professional work. I'll probably end up changing it again, but it's better than the previous page. Below is an overview of my work and background. It does not include a stack of on-the-record material, or any creative writing. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.
