Summary of Experience
Writing has always been fun and rewarding for Chuck. That was true early in his career when he was in education, and it was true during his career in computer technology.

After completing his master's degree in education, Chuck worked as a high school guidance counselor before changing the direction of his career by moving into factory management. Three years later, he changed directions once more. This time, starting as a Programmer Trainee, he moved into the computer field where he spent the rest of his corporate career, working his way into upper management positions. He was on the task force that determined how to launch the truly innovative Discover Card.

Throughout his career, Chuck learned a lot with each new assignment. What he eventually came to realize, however, was that no matter which assignment he was in, the tasks that required writing -- reports, white papers, speeches, manuals, documentation -- were the tasks that gave him the greatest satisfaction and success.

Able to retire early, Chuck started his own consulting firm focusing on and writing about how businesses could better protect themselves from fraud, and how to be better prepared to recover from any kind of a disaster. Today, the content he enjoys writing about the most includes business related matters, educational content, and American history. In addition, although he's not a trained professional in the field, because he has traveled quite a bit and visited numerous cities and countries around our globe, he enjoys writing about various locations, their history, people, and culture. You can bet Chuck will enjoy writing for you!

Education, B.S. Ed, M.S. Ed

Association Memberships
Drumthwacket Foundation Sep 2012
In keeping with his interest in American History, he applied for and was accepted to train as a Docent in Training (DIT) for the Governor's Mansion in Princeton, NJ. Once accepted, the DIT must study the history of the mansion as well as its interior and decor. After studying, the DIT must shadow other Docents to learn additional touring insights and techniques which helps the DIT to decide how to "script" his/her own tour. Finally, when ready, each DIT must pass the requisite checkout tour before being permitted to give tours on his or her own.

Certificates
Certified Substitute Teacher, Grades K through 8 Princeton Public School District, Princeton, New Jersey
Sep 2012
He very much enjoys teaching. Given he never really taught for very long after graduating from college, a few years after he retired, he decided to finally use his degrees in education and began substitute teaching. During the regular school year, his phone "rings off the hook."

Projects by Industry
Web Development

His writing experience has been providing content for a company's court reporting website. To do so, he had to study the client's competing websites, do research on the responsibilities and activities of court reporters, to learn about and then describe the tools of court reporting. Finally, he had to understand the company and its goals in order to best promote its website.

Business

Able to retire early, he started his own consulting firm focusing on and writing about how businesses could better protect themselves from fraud, and how to prepare for the unexpected event. He also worked with a computer fraud detection company, and wrote a white paper for them entitled "Disaster Recovery Planning" which they published on their website. During that same period of time, he worked with the F.B.I. tracking down computer hackers who were attempting to prey on various merchants. He also wrote a white paper entitled "Expect the Unexpected" that was used by a large credit card company as a large church. An sample excerpt from that white paper follows.

Education

Chuck earned a Master's degree in Education with a concentration in Guidance and Counseling. He learned and employed non-directive counseling techniques so well that his professors asked him to accept the position of Teaching Associate, and to teach these techniques to other Master's candidates who were studying remotely. Upon graduation, he was hired as a guidance counselor in a high school. He eventually moved into the corporate world. However, able to retire early, he re-entered the education field by substitute teaching in grades K through 8 which he has been doing for the last several years.

Projects by Writing Style
Conversational

In the early stages of his life and schooling, Chuck was not fond of either history or geography. However, as he began to travel more frequently and over time within the United States and to other countries, he started to develop an interest about all kinds of locations, both near and far. He began to pay attention to how a location's geography and its peoples when taken together brought about its history and culture.

Promotional

He has written in many different styles which have been requested by his clients. He can write in technical terms, in a promotional or marketing manner, in descriptive way with a personal flavor, or whatever style is required by the client. However, his preferred writing style is promotional or descriptive that calls for a warm tone, and one that concludes with a call to action.
