My name is Angela McCain, aka Darling Gypsum, and I am a media creator! I am a passionate writer and storyteller through voice acting, music, fiction, art, and podcasting. I am also a founder and Director of Marketing at Nerdsmith.org, an online entertainment network supported by fans.
Passionate about media production and information technology, my core skills are in the intersection between the technical and creative. I am a communicator and a liaison. I design and create professional quality media content, but more uniquely, I help highly technical and highly creative people work effectively together, share ideas, and solve problems.
My library and information studies background makes me uniquely adaptable in every project I encounter. My expertise lies in not only having the knowledge, skills, and training to produce professional quality media content, but in knowing how to find the knowledge, skills, and training that I don’t have yet. I am a passionate learner and researcher.
