Summary of Experience
John started writing in earnest when he was fourteen, completing a hundred-page short story that became the basis for a fantasy novel he completed the summer between junior and senior year of high school and registered with the Copyright Office and Library of Congress. He was also the editor of his school paper throughout high school. In college, John's tenure as his degree program's Teacher's Assistant was marked by his clear dissemination of information in the form of white papers for his technical classes. As a web developer, he has written hundreds of pages of content for Fortune 500 companies as well as small capital ventures around the country. Sadly, his blog was recently lost from the server, wherein his free-thinker ramblings had been posted. He intends to resurrect the blog soon, and currently works on the re-write of his once long-lost novel.

Projects by Industry
Education

John built a reputation among friends, family, and peers as a go-to contact for technical support ranging from the Windows OS (98-Win7), Mac OS (Mavericks, Mountain Lion), MS Office Suite (2000 - current), Adobe Creative Suite (7-CC) (as a Teacher's Assistant and tutor), and other various applications over the last 18 years.

Politics

John is a reformed conservative who evolved over the last decades to become a passionate and loud-mouthed liberal progressive. A vocal and proud supporter of the Occupy Movement, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders, John enjoys flummoxing the Tea Party Republicans and their ilk with references to history, science, and why those things actually matter to the discussion of anything, subscribing to the notion that no one is entitled to their own facts. He keeps a list of logical fallacies handy in his head and on his desk so as to avoid them and to call them out... which those adorable conservatives cannot stand.

Projects by Asset Type
Blog Post

John writes political and social commentary semi-regularly and is an outspoken self-admitted progressive liberal. He relies upon history, peer-reviewed studies, available current data, and science to gird his arguments and welcomes challenges to his viewpoints. The sample below was written in 2004, well before Judge Vaughn Walker took the first swipe at DOMA in his ruling in 2010; his decision echoes the points I made six years beforehand.

Speech

John took to public speaking as a teenager, and in his adult life spent nearly a decade as a lay pastor before leaving religion altogether. Before, during, and since then, John has written and delivered countless speeches. It remains his lifelong dream to one day run for political office.

Projects By Expertise
Research Writer

John writes for clear, thorough, precise communication. Cohesion, description, imagery, and clarity are pillars to his approach. John seeks to inspire, challenge, and lift up the awareness of others through the written word.

Projects by Writing Style
Conversational

As a former lay pastor and public speaker, John understands that people absorb information more readily when it is written as though a friend is talking with them. Not too casual, yet not overly formal, John's style is to state the case being made in summary, the support it with facts, figures, scientific studies, and historical context, then re-state the case as confirmed by the evidence available.
