Selva, olet parhaillaan sviulla joilta loytyy minun englannin kielinen "tyohakemukseni." Suomessahan ei aivan samaa systeemia kayteta, mutta jos joku sattuu tarvitsemaan kansainvalisella kokemuksella varustettua nuorta mainostoimistoon tai huolehtimaan graafisesta suunnittelusta, katsohan eteenpain. Tietenkin Internet suunnittelu tai vastaava paikka kiinnostaisi. Olen viela yliopistossa Hawaiilla, ja olen valmistumassa talvella 1999/2000.

Mukana talla sivulla myos joitain kuvia joita olen suunnitellut PhotoShop-ohjelmalla koulu tapahtumiin.
