Hi Everyone,
My last contract ended and now I'm on the hard-core hunt for more work. I'm
really looking to get some more experience in tech/support. I've done
customer support for tribe.net for the last year.
I am also a illustrator/graphic designer, having done work for lots of
local folks.
Oh, ya, and lots of hardware skills, but they seem to not have many jobs
crop up these days.
Below is my resume- which, also, if you have any comments on how to make it
better, by all means.
Meredith
