I wasn’t born an API doc writer. Actually, before I earned my BA in English at the University of Southern Maine in 1998, I was a blue collar grunt. Highlights below…
Canoe livery manager at SacoBound. 12 year of moving 12,000 canoes across ten miles of Saco River put-ins and take outs every year. Trained Class B commercial drivers. Managed a crew of 20. Serviced 25,000+ customers annually.
Attitash Ski Area snowmaking supervisor, Bartlett, NH. 12 years of snowmaking pipe installation, heavy-equipment operator, and ski lift installation and maintenance. 60-70 hour weeks working outside.
Senior Account Executive at CBC Advertising. I managed $850,000 of annual revenue servicing national radio and TV advertising clients. Scripting writing, video production, and customer service. New business development and media habits research were my specialties.
Local SEO consultant (pdgseo.com) working with website owners developing traffic, engagement and lead generation.
Poland Spring: I worked nights for nearly 3 years at Poland Spring as a lead package operator. 12 hour shifts 6P-6A. Great job, it covered the mortgage, paid for new shoes for the kids and allowed me to build my customer base.
