I have been cleaning up old drafts of posts that I apparently didn’t publish. Here is one dated September 15, 2012. I added some jobs based on my updated resume. At the bottom, I decided to add a few things from past careers (just in case I ever need to do that book jacket bio).
It occurs to me that I, like many others, have no idea what my job is (was). So I will attempt, here, to enumerate the many things that are, and have been, my work life at Hole’s for the past 15 (Ed. Note: now make that 16+ years in total) years or so.
Hole’s & the Enjoy Centre
Graphic Designer: logos, word marks, ads, signage, signage systems, product packaging, flyers, tv ads, video graphics
Social Media expert
Audio system designer
Forensic IT investigator
IP Telephony support
Note: I am generally limiting this to specific things people have paid/hired me for as a job description unlike the above list which were all in the context of a single job description. Jobs listed in roughly reverse chronological order.
