Who Am I?
My name is Elizabeth Rector, welcome to my website! You could say that I'm a renaissance woman...I work in advertising as a copywriter. The field of advertising is ever-changing and incredibly fascinating. I like to keep up with the latest trends in the field and really get a feel of who I'm creating content for. I also rather enjoy PR and thrive off of other people. I'm not afraid of a good challenge and I take pride in everything I create, whether its for work or for life. I'm also an artist - I paint with acrylics and oils, I draw, sketch and even sculpt (if I feel so inclined). It is wonderful when my creative side is utilized in work.
I should also mention that I am fluent in Photoshop, InDesign, Flash and Dreamweaver...I've even tried my hand at building apps.
You could say that I'm pretty involved in the digital world. I have a facebook, a twitter, a Tublr, a Pinterest a Blogger Blog and of course this website! I love learning about technology and am currently taking an APP Development class. Although it can be frustrating at times, technology is the foundation for the future and I find it so thrilling to constantly expand my technological knowledge base.
Another very important facet of myself is my love of writing. I was published before I was even a senior in high school and was the founder and Editor in Chief of my high school newspaper, The Torch. In my college career I have worked on various novels and children's books and sometimes wrote for TCU's newspaper, The Skiff. I was also a Cartoonist for the Skiff and enjoyed combining my art and humor in visual representations of current issues.
As far as my college life was concerned, I was a member of Eta Iota Sigma, Alpha Lambda Delta, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Public Relations Student Society of America and the National Hall Honor Society. Phew...that's a lot of stuff. Temper that with philanthropies, my internship at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and art commissions and I was a very busy person over those past four years.
Overall, I think my field is one-of-a-kind and I look forward to watching it grow, shift and change. My artistic and writing skills play a large role in my work and I love to stay challenged.
Feel free to drop me a line if you're interested in either my advertising, writing or artistic skills. Need a caricature portrait of your head on Superman's body? I can do that.
