Strengths and Capabilities

Technical

As a highly technical person (geek) who has hands on experience with building computers, communications networks and associated equipment, technical writing and training projects are typically easy for me.

Innovative

With a history of creating innovative solutions, I discount artificial limitations by constantly re-examining existing processes, assumptions and structures.

Organized

I'm a spreadsheet maniac and often use them to organize my thoughts and ideas around specific projects or groups of projects. My desk however is rarely organized.

Project Management

Planning and managing large and complex projects and leading teams to completion is something I have experience with. I have often created and managed international workgroups to complete projects. 

Research

Using my intuitive grasp of technical information and some search modifiers, I am able to quickly locate information needed to advance my projects or validate ideas. 

Lifelong Learner

Lifelong learning is required in technical fields. Luckily I enjoy acquiring new knowledge and learning about new things. I am able to understand and use new tools and ideas quickly. 

Troubleshooter

A natural knack for troubleshooting comes from my innate ability to understand complex systems and break them apart into testable units. It doesn't hurt to get an exact definition around the problem either.

Collaborative

Web, media, and training projects are often part of larger projects that involve working with large teams that are often geographically diverse. I have lots of experience in this arena.

Creative

As a visual thinker, I am able to imagine, manipulate and create in my mind. My mastery of creative tools such as Photoshop allows me to then realize my artistic vision.
