Work History

As the ages pass, it gets even harder to keep track of the whens and wheres, much less fit them all on a resume.  I always thought a website would be the best way to archive and display, and now I have one.  Let’s give this a crack.

Employers and clients, this song is dedicated to you.

You may prefer to check the LinkedIn.  I try to keep it up to date for newer things, but they have dumb limitations, like 20 skills.  Puh-lease.  We’re going to need a bigger box.

Let’s do this:
