I’m not just a broccoli guard, I’m also a member of the sesame seed squad. Think of me as designer floss. I prevent visual decay. If you’ve got something in your grill that doesn’t belong there, you can count on me to tell you. I’m close friends with analogies, metaphors and to quote Alexandra Petri, “no pun is beneath me.”
Collaborative, analytical, thoughtful. Positive, patient and kind. Working with or for jerks sucks. Constructive critique is gold. I’m a comfortable chatter, but I’m curious and like to listen, absorb, ask questions, and prefer to respond vs. react. Understanding the why is essential for working smartly. The Nike method isn’t practical in creative problem-solving but it’s great when you’re on a deadline.
I’M IN A SERIAL COMMA
Oxford commas might not be in your style guide, and I’m happy to follow a rule, but personally I’m partial to them because they provide an extra bit of order. The proliferation of typos indicates multiple things: a need to slow down, to follow a process that includes spell-check, and to print it out. Brains digest words differently on-screen and overloaded humans are prone to errors. Speed over quality isn’t an equation that typically yields positive results. When asked about multi-tasking well, I assume it’s a trick question because no one does. If you’re juggling too much, a ball will drop. If there’s a need to switch gears frequently outside of a happy busy norm, I’ll want to learn about any holes in planning that are contributing culprits and discuss ways to close them. Reviewing outcomes from a non-judgmental perspective is essential for successful path planning.
I LIVE A RUFF LIFE
Technically I own animals, but I’m a pet parent, so they really own me. I own a trademark and a brand. There are more pets and products in my future.
