Skills & Tools

Technical skills and competencies are listed below, and while important to many tasks, they only tell part of the story. Many years in the classroom and in management positions, along with my continuing education, have added strong generalist abilities to my specialist skills and have given me an excellent understanding of the "big picture" as relates to education, to production and to business. Add to this very strong communicatin skills--both oral and written--and the result is someone who can be counted on to provide professional results at most levels.
