SUSSING OUT THE UNVARNISHED TRUTH IN DATA
Here you’ll find access to an offline package and links to some of the companies I’ve worked for. I leverage technology and its complexity as a means to simplify and elucidate all sorts of content. The material is prepared in state-of-the-art publishing environments and serves to satisfy print and web delivery simultaneously. Quark and WordPress are the content management systems that I use most frequently.
With a host of software and skills I provide specialist support or serve in the overseer capacity, solo or in collaboration with production/design groups large and small. My career path is diffused over a broad and complementary content creation field that blends writing and editing, in-depth research and analysis, desktop publishing and page layout/design, communications and information design (including infographics). Having taken a steady stream of jobs in the publishing, Internet media, financial services and entertainment industries since the 1990s, I have grown adept at framing content precisely within the proper tone, audience, regulatory or compliance framework as necessary. I have also occasionally worked on web sites for municipal governments, school systems and non-profits (educational/charitable organizations).
Behind the response pong lurks the usual résumé, references and other sundry details. In 2017 I’m under contract and combining several functions: senior-level writing and editing; in-depth research and analysis across a wide range of subjects; editorial/layout design and assembly of statistical graphics/charts; and publishing production and coordination.
Work days are currently split between the home office and the global headquarters of a Silicon Valley-based asset management firm, where I am situated within the writing, editing, production, research and design staff (Investment Communications blending with Research & Analytics, Creative Services and Digital Publishing), and producing content worldwide from the primary hub. I am also “embedded” with the portfolio managers and security analysts. I possess an intricate understanding of US and foreign economies, markets and current events, all asset classes (including derivatives) and the ties that bind them.
Acquired subject-matter expertise surfaces in several niches, with strength in commodities and natural resources (including energy and alternative energy, precious and base/industrial metals, rare earths and other critical or strategic metals/minerals); information technology; biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and health technology; and utilities (e.g., electric, gas, water, multi-utilities and renewables). With a creative and technical approach I can develop “thought leadership” content across any subject matter, sector or industry.
