I understand that in the current economic climate jobs are scarce. But I am looking for an open position in the Action Figure arts. As my attached resume indicates , I am highly skilled in the field of action figures. I can make them do all sorts of kicks and punches. I can make really cool sound effects. I can act out scenes from movies, or make up my own scenes... I'm totally flexible.

If your company has any positions open that require my skill set, please don't hesitate to contact me.
