I'm Stephen. I like to write. A lot.
I also love creating meaningful web content that grabs the attentions/imaginations of all of those people sailing out there on the vast ocean of the internets. This is why I'm committed to producing quality features, such as reviews, informative articles, and interviews, for your website on a consistent weekly basis (and promote them accordingly) so your traffic goes up. And if you need copy written, I'm your man, as I have had significant SEO copywriting experience.
In addition to my ninja-like verbal prowess, I also bring to the table my graphic design and visual art skills, as I produce all of the graphics for my articles. These can be banners, screenshots, animated gifs, Photoshop alterations, Illustrator images, etc. I also edit together videos in my spare time, so I can isolate clips or create a presentation easily and quickly.
