I look forward to supporting an interesting business as an analyst/writer using my strengths, skills, and experience as a self-starter, including analysis, writing, presentation, management, and interpersonal relations.
HUH? AREN’T YOU A PASTOR?
I am a pastor looking to make a career change.
Though it was some time ago, my experience in Industrial Engineering stays with me. I am curious and tech savvy. My early claim to fame is that I wrote a piece of software for our department that saved several hours per week of Industrial Engineer time.
I have spent the last 20+ years researching, preparing, presenting, teaching, and leading people through contemplating life’s most profound questions. In my case, this involves regular use of a variety of delivery systems, including public speaking, written coursework, online learning management systems, webinars, podcasts, and Facebook live videos.
I am a creative person who believes in continual improvement. My current primary mode of continual learning is podcasts.
My combination of people skills, continual learning, teaching experience, science literacy, and tech savviness will bring great value to an organization that needs a self-starting technical writer. I am looking forward to making a valuable contribution to an interesting business doing work that I love.
