Statement of Ambition

This is posted on my brand new résumé page.

I am a man of action, and a man who thrives on communication. I do my best when I am constantly challenged and required to use critical thinking and problem solving to reach a desired outcome. Yet this is all too general. If you are involved in advertising, public relations, consulting, publishing or new media, read on, and I’ll tell you why you should hire me. If you’re not involved in any of those, read on anyway, I’m probably willing to work with you as well.

• Advertising and public relations

The art of rhetoric and the tactical placement of words and images are vital components to successfully selling your product; from mouthwash to public policy. I have the stubbornness, tact, and personality to maintain a brand image in the face of opposition, and the chops to prove it. I also know when to keep my mouth shut.

• Consulting

Analysis, synthesis, quantification and qualification are paramount abilities for an effective consultant. I can absorb vast quantities of information, burn the chaff and provide a distinct and focused briefing of any problem. My cooperative nature makes team brainstorming sessions the perfect setting for best use of my brainpower.

• Publishing

With over two years of experience with a major publisher, nearly perfect grammatical skill, and a voracious appetite for the written word, I am well-suited to the deadline based workflows of the publishing industry.

• New Media

As hobbies go, a fascination and facility for the logic and syntax of new media products is rather high on the geek scale. Yet few things flip my switches more than a thorny standards compliance issue or delicate piece of video editing. If you’re looking for a detail-oriented, on-the-ball self-starter, look no further.

So if you’d like to talk with me about opportunities at your workplace, or have any questions, give me a call at 216.287.1370 or send me an email at aharvey@organicmechanic.org. I hope to hear from you.

  1. “a man of action”…i immediately pictured the “Brock Landers and Chest Rockwell” segment in Boogie Nights, in which Marky Mark brandishes nunchuks while sporting a denim patchwork suit.
