Dear Potential Colleagues at Art and Logic,
You have my application and my LinkedIn profile. But I don’t think those will give you a complete picture of who I am as a professional or as a person. So I thought an invitation to my website was in order.
Assorted Chaos is a home for my random thoughts, essays, and updates on life. Some of my thoughts are profound, others are conflicted, and some are just flat out silly. You’ll also notice that I have a cat or two.
Anyway, here are five things about me that I thought you should know:
2) My favorite text editor is Sublime. I’m using it now to build an HTML email for my current job. I also use it to do repairs and upgrades to my website.
3) I have design skills. I make a mean fact sheet in InDesign. I know how to work with Photoshop and Illustrator too.
4) I perform improvisational and standup comedy. Improv has provided me with skills to think on my feet, to communicate more clearly, and the ability to excel in front of an audience. I love making people laugh.
5) Finally and most importantly, I’m a story teller. I finished a novel last year. To pay the bills, I have made my living I telling engaging stories about science. As a science writer, I have mostly focused on biology and neuroscience, but I’m very interested in wielding my talents for technology topics as well. You can see an example of some of the work I do a by clicking on the video.
This is who I am– a quirky geek with a passion for technology, writing, and cracking jokes. If you give me a chance to be your colleague, I imagine we would bond almost instantly over comic books, sudoku, and tales of coding glory. At the very least, I think we would connect via a shared desire to produce the best code possible.
I hope I get a chance to talk to y’all soon.
All the best,
