Employment Philosophy
I believe employment as a concept is for the primary purpose of providing for the life and well-being of the families of the people involved. The success of the company is the vital secondary goal to preserve that life. For me, automation and workflow planning are powerful tools to give employees the ability to accomplish more for the success of the company without adding undue burden to their daily life and often even reducing their workload. My goal is to facilitate abundant life for employees while helping them achieve a greater level of success for the company.

Professional Experience
HEALTHSOUTH CORPORATION, Birmingham, AL HealthSouth is one of the nation's largest healthcare services providers with revenues in excess of $2 billion. Pre-Press Operations Manager / Macintosh Server and Systems 2002Administrator Present I am responsible for all aspects of workflow and pre-press functions in connection with all marketing materials, business supplies and forms printing. Our final

workflow is a fully automated "blind" solution based on FilemakerPro, Artworks Odystar, Applescript, PERL, Adobe CS and Acrobat Pro. By developing an extensive data set for each customer, press, bindary opperation and job, we can produce pressready plates and proofs at the click of a mouse with little or no human interaction. The same interface provides us with all job ticket information to move the job through the shop and out the door. Extensive Job information and UPS data give our Customer Service Reps on-demand information to help our customers and provide the reporting for administrative needs. To keep this workflow running smoothly, I manage multiple servers, workstations, networking, operating systems, software, maintenance, file archiving and backups. Recognized for automation and workflow streamlining which facilitated five out of the six full-time employees in the pre-press department being transferred to other positions and a significant reduction in material usages. Simultaneously increased our "through-put" capabilities and reduced the time needed to accomplish a normal day's work allowing more time for development and further improvements. Project Manager for Business Supply Automation 2000-2002 I was responsible for development of an online entry/ordering method to automate the production of business supplies and forms for the corporation. Operating a combination of LINUX and Macintosh solutions, this system gave us the ability to typeset, preview, approve and run film through a web interface several years before mainstream solutions were widely available. Designed, developed, and implemented a web-based internet system that resulted in both significant time and cost savings even in prototype stages. It significantly reduced the need for outsourced typesetting. Although full rollout of the project was canceled due to corporate restructuring, the use of this automated system allowed for all business supply production to be brought in-house. This has resulted in a savings to HealthSouth of several hundred thousand dollars each year since the completion of the project. Senior Pre-Press Operator 1999-2000 I was responsible for pre-flighting and successful output of all print jobs, developing output workflow and training employees. Shifted output workflow from TrapWise/PressWise to Preps and Agfa InRip Trapping including development of an extensive impositioning template set. Standardized film punches and imaging areas eliminating 80% of manual stripping and overlays for plate burning.
