Crafty Content Creator (Corporate/College/Casual) Samir Lal, Writing & Content
Good afternoon, folks. The name's Samir, and I'm here to add some flavor to your words. I have a whole cupboard full of spices, gathered from far and wide, that are guaranteed to jazz up even the dullest of sentences. Why do it? I know how frustrating corporate communication can be. I've had to trudge through my fair share of lifeless emails, each sentence more vacuous than the last. I know how it feels to want to tear your eyes out of their sockets after seeing the same clichéd lingo over and over again. Well, it doesn't have to be this way. I'm here to help ensure it isn't. So, what say you? Yay or nay? Yay-ers, shoot me an email; I'll respond back with that same message, but coated in my own special seasoning. I hope you enjoy the taste. Students need not fear, either. I'm quite hip to the research paper game, having read (and authored) countless pieces of academic journalism during my time as an Economics major. Once I recover the files from my previous laptop, which has decided to abandon me after years of loyal service, I will attach some examples of my scholastic output. As for those of you outside of the corporate world, you're in even bigger luck. Not to toot my own horn, but I'm somewhat of a storyteller of sorts; at least, I enjoy writing them. In addition to stories, I write poetry and music as well. I'll attach one of my first works of fiction so you can get a sense of how exactly I write, and whether or not it's something you'd be interested in more of. (serious inquiries welcome...silly inquiries preferred) Hope to hear from at least one of you!

Dave Shively

United States, Lahaina
Writer/Designer Dave Shively, Writing & Content
I've been a designer for 33 years and as Production Director for Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd. (1996-2020), I created, developed and managed all facets of the production department. I was responsible for producing every order, stock print and display piece. In other words, my hands have been on every print you see in the galleries and nearly every print we produced since 1996. I co-wrote, designed and developed all promotional and advertising materials. I was solely responsible for creating custom presentations for hotel projects and destination groups. I provided assistance with sales, marketing and merchandising strategies. I also assisted several local artists form their commercial identities and market their work. I took on wide-format printing technology and the advances that came with the trade to help shape the company become the most successful giclée gallery on Maui. https://www.rarebookhub.com/articles/2552/print?page_id=4607 The challenges that were brought about last year by the Covid pandemic, prompted me to end my career with Lahaina Printsellers and put my decades of design, printing and art business experience together to create my online art gallery, Maui Visions. (www.mauiartprints.com). I designed and wrote all content on my site and shot every product shown. This side project is a work in progress and I’m expanding my gallery collections and services every day.
