Story

Freelance book cover designer, indie publishing champion and creativity coach.
Introduction
I've been a fine artist, started up several companies, and lived in a lot of countries (Argentina, Malta, Spain, Italy) but right now I'm finishing my PHD in English Literature in Taiwan. I'm also building a reputation as a book cover designer and self-publishing expert.
Bragging rights
5 years of scholarship from Taiwan government; sold translation rights of my first book to #1 Russian publisher; have sold paintings for $1500usd; National representative of Amnesty International; never have to wake up before noon, for anything.
