Summary

In a field chock full of ultra-slick, jargon-spouting specialists, wouldn't it be nice to hire someone who uses both sides of his brain?

I have worked in the computer field since the Dark Ages, having purchased my first home system in 1984. Since then, I've labored for companies large and small, run my own businesses, and taught on subjects ranging from Excel to Science Fiction to physiology. I stay in the technical field because it's challenging and rewarding, and pays the mortgage.

If you're looking for hires who hand code UNIX scripts in their sleep, or have memorized the web-safe color chart, look elsewhere. Such folks are plentiful, but tend to get bored unless you feed them a steady diet of caffeine and short deadlines.

On the other hand, if you're looking for someone who understands:

  • content management
  • troubleshooting common hardware and software issues
  • user interface design
  • project management and editing

  • please drop me a note, or call.

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

—Robert A. Heinlein

"I can keep honest counsel, ride, run, mar a curious tale in telling it and deliver a plain message bluntly. That which ordinary men are fit for, I am qualified in, and the best of me is diligence."

—William Shakespeare, King Lear
