Profile:

BOOM! That is the noise of a headline becoming a headshot. Sharp piercing words penetrate and stick in the mind of the reader while they are subconsciously reeled in. That is what I want to achieve, and it is what I can offer. Whether you want a team player or someone to go it solo, I can prove I have what it takes to fulfil those roles. I’m equipped with plenty of perks and abilities to ensure I have the most flexible, up to date, and varied attributes as possible. If you want someone who is capable of jumping from platform to platform (and collecting all the gold coins along the way) then look no further.

I have a great proficiency when it comes to all relevant gaming hardware and social media sites. I can offer a unique, but utterly compelling writing style, which can be adjusted to meet the requirements of the target audience. I have a breadth of gaming knowledge with the modern era being my speciality. I am eager to learn more, gain experience, level up, and then spend those new skill points. All I ask is that you help give the gaming industry the innovation it needs by making me your chosen character. Here is my portfolio/blog: (http://www.sampeace91.wordpress.com/) below you will see my stats.
