I learn things and I find solutions
I'm a generalist, with the capability for deep level cross-reference. My specialties are content operations, workflow planning, and the nitty-gritty of content creation and publication. By understanding what is being communicated, how the publications made, and how it's published, I can combine strategic thinking with technical know-how.
To make sure the plans I carry out suit the tools available, I know some XML, some HTML, some CSS, a bit of graphic design and a couple of CMSs. This lets me go from top level planning down to on-the-fly troubleshooting of individual documents or publications.
I also speak a little Japanese and a touch of Spanish.
In addition to planning and co-producing The Special Relationship (a live literary show) from 2010 through 2016,
I did the graphic design for the website, flyers and social media.
Sometimes I make Lunar New Year's cards.
