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!

Summary of Industry Experience

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.
