Liana Winternitz loves to do stuff. Like the time I wrote an directed a Quantum Leap fan fiction play and cast my friends to perform it for me for my birthday. Like when I built a Star Wars X-Wing pilot costume just to wear when I watch Star Wars, or creating a Jurassic Park based roll playing game where you get to play as dinosaurs. Or make fancy felt collars for my dog. Marketing and graphic design keep me alive in many ways and I also do things that are not as dorky, but I'm not as proud of those, that's what this is for. For hire. firstname.lastname@example.org
