And not just your garden-variety problems either - most of the time I'm dreaming up solutions to problems people didn't even know they had. I enjoy brainstorming and analysis so that my high ideaphoria can be put to good use.
I draw from the wide breadth of my education(Political Science and Civil Engineering)and work experience in order to bridge the gap between advanced technology and the general public in word and in print. This skill has proven very useful for jobs in client services, marketing, proposal writing and journalism.
As an extrovert, occasions to collaborate and generate creative ideas really energize me. I will seize any opportunity to contribute to the self-improvement of others, especially if coffee is involved.
Area Covered: North America and Western Europe
Industry: Marketing and Advertising
