I am looking for meaningful work promoting businesses and causes, ideas big and small, and personal and planetary edification. Gigs in illustration, design, teaching, or advocacy (business and non-profit) or some combination thereof are especially attractive.
I'll bring with me:
- 4-year degree
- Graphics and marketing experience
- Classroom teaching experience
- Service orientation
- Great presentation skills
- Veteran heart disease fighter
- ‘T-shaped’ personhood (Verified!)
- Humor and enthusiasm
In return I'll ask for:
- Quality leadership and mentoring
- Opportunity to grow
- Work that leans toward the Good
- Competitive compensation
