has had an office with up to 7 employees, I prefer to work alone

I'm not looking for software development work at this time.
Services offered: design, scanning, image conversions. Paint Shop Pro guru. I've
contributed graphics to just about every web page and piece of software mentioned on
this page. Plus, I have had over 100 illustrations pubilshed over the years.
I was book cover designed for samsDotPublishing for a few years.
For a gallery of Scott's graphics, check this out.
I have a lot of fun producing sound FX, from CD-audio quality down to the smallest 11KHz
chirp. I have budget equipment, but an ear for quality. With digital sound processing
and noise reduction tools, I will always provide clean sounds. I can also provide music
scores, from classical to rock & techno; MOD, MIDI, WAV, MP3.
Sound/music is definitely a part-time pursuit for me, but I do have archives which may have
what you need, and I will consider new projects. Past projects:
