John A. Nail


I have more than 16 years experience in print media, primarily as a graphic designer, though I have worked as a reporter and editor as well. The company I was working for went out of business in November 2009 so I have been looking for work, full-time and freelance.

A little about my interests and hobbies: I love movies, especially older ones, primarily in the 1940-1980 range. I usually gravitate to film noir and melodrama, though I have a weakness for drive-in trash and camp. In short, I enjoy "In a Quiet Place," "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" and "The Lonely Lady" equally, if for different reasons. I also read a lot of novels, particularly thrillers and crime stories. I also love writing, which is why whenever someone e-mails me they can expect a book-length response. Needless to say, I haven't jumped on the Twitter bandwagon. Srsly.
