(Machine-friendly)

Technical

I am known as an unparalleled troubleshooter and technician. I am methodical, focused and somewhat relentless when it comes to solving problems and crafting solutions. If something breaks, I can fix it. If something needs to be built, I can build it. If some task requires acquiring new skills, I acquire them. I am tenacious and focused I cannot emphasize this enough. I am a non-stop learner. I am fascinated by what technology has to offer and I am constantly absorbing new techniques and new knowledge.

 

Social

One of my greatest strengths is my ability to establish professional, collaborative, productive communication with a wide and diverse range of people. I am highly regarded for my technical abilities but, those who know me and work alongside me will invariably reference my outgoing, enthusiastic nature and my sense of humor.

 

Design and Aesthetic Sensibility

I am accomplished at creating imagery in multiple media, and have a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of visual communication. I understand both the art and psychology of visual communication—what works and why—and when to break the rules. I know how to leverage visual imagery to evoke response and facilitate communication. I am an accomplished professional studio photographer in addition to being an enthusiastic hobbyist who likes to organize photographic shoot-outs with friends.

I am also a thoroughly well equipped videographer with a solid knowledge of lighting, formats, codecs, audio engineering, editing, and rendering for multiple delivery streams.

 

Value Added

I am a stickler for detail. I notice the things we all should have learned in school, had we been paying attention (apologies to Tom and Ray Magliozzi).

People encountering egregious lapses in spelling, grammar, and punctuation; who know when to use an em dash; when it's appropriate to use "it's"; and how to properly cite a published document will notice when these things aren't right. We have all encountered examples of poor use of the English language. It seems more and more common these days to come across published material that is woefully inarticulate and inadequate. The inescapable reality is that many people still value high standards in communication and will base their opinion of your site, your products, and your services on whether your marketing is well conceived and professional.

If you also value a high degree of rigor in publishing then, you will certainly appreciate the degree of precision and facility with language I offer.
