My Pseudo-Resume



Typical Cover Letter Points:
From writing instruments to timepieces; history to art; architecture to engineering; and philosophy to computers…my passions cover a broad range of topics and ideas. I studied architecture in my first years of high school and progressed to mechanical engineering; even helping teach along side the instructor my senior year. My interests in art carried me into industrial design and almost earned me a spot on the patent paperwork for a part I designed while working as a summer draftsmen when I was seventeen. My passion in computers and how people used them took over that same summer. I went from my first office job at fifteen helping in basic computer tasks to now supporting 30 employees and the company’s computer infrastructure.

My current job responsibilities are: helping our employees, working with clients on incentive programs, creating a department budget, creating corporate policies while maintaining the computer security and technology backbone of our company.

My free time is divided between reading books –ranging from classics, to reference- and volunteering at a Library & Museum. I am the corporate Vice President for the Library & Museum and my responsibilities cover: developing a strategic business plan, organizing the public relations committee and chairing director’s meetings when the President is absent.

Positions in business and information systems, where I can use my extensive computer experience, communication skills and business knowledge to act as a technological liaison between users, technical staff and clients; while helping maintain and refine current business processes.

Welcome to a brave new blog



Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Oh how cliché! Start up a blog and make yourself or your readers think that the world might change through your blog or your life might suddenly become more important if you let out all of your feelings.

Okay enough ripping on the blog world. What the hell do I intend to do with my blog? Who knows! A little bit of everything I presume. From ripping on types of people to talking about work, life, random things in general.

Make a note: this blog is really for me and not for you. :)
