Welcome and thank you for viewing my bio. I am a native of California and currently live in beautiful Amador County. I love California, and I enjoy the contrast of working and living in different settings; city urban and among the splendor of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Prior to living in Amador County, I lived in the counties of Sonoma, Sacramento, and El Dorado. These demographic areas and, various other places of travel and exploration, have influenced the subject matter of my work which can be described as versatile and evolving.
My Written Work
My technical communications take into consideration components such as audience, intercultural factors, and visual hierarchy. I began working toward a BS in technical communication in 2016 and couldn’t image a better academic path, especially combined with my study of visual design. Writing has deep roots in my life, starting when I was a young person. I absolutely love technical writing and I can switch gears and write creatively which is where I started; I have written many poems, sayings, and letters. Yet, I craved a degree that branched into the technical aspects of information construction. My professional work in writing consists of technical document compositions; I love everything about the research, compiling, organization, writing, rewriting, and editing of technical documentation for various audiences (non-technical, sub-technical, technical and cross-cultural). My personal and creative work consists of both abstract poetry, and concrete poetry. My goal is to put my technical abilities to work for an organization or clients who appreciate the creative component I have to offer as well. I hope to grow in areas such as content management and strategies.
My Visual Work
My images seek to capture significant and insignificant aspects of people, places, and things. My professional work consists of photographing real estate and land. My personal and creative work consists of photographing architecture, landscapes, people, animals and macro photography outside and in a small studio setting. I studied graphic and interactive design and while doing so took a class in photography and I was hooked. Though I still do some design work, I love photography and spend my extra time learning about it, as well as, digital photo editing and manipulation. Through photography I was able to work under my company name Vonrae Designs, as a freelance photographer, while I pursued a degree in technical communication.
My ultimate goal is to continue growing professionally, technically and creatively by doing.
