Resume and Collateral Materials
With everything switching to digital, and this website handy, I wanted to have all of my resume information in one place. You will find my resume, a general cover letter, and links to various relevant information.
433 Laurel Avenue
Aldan, PA 19018
For this website, all copy, videos, photography and updates were done by me. For the original design, I collaborated with Graphic Designer, Georgette Klotz.
I collaborated with BTC Marketing for the design of the website and all collateral marketing materials. I produced all of the copy.
Orthodontic Resource Group
I launched the original nonprofit, The Association of Orthodontic Laboratory Professionals (AOLP) in 2017 but it was later renamed. I supplied much of the original copy, collaborated with BTC Marketing for the collateral materials, and produced the original conference programs as well as a zero issue for a quarterly magazine.
When the technological tsunami swamped my industry, I began writing blog posts. I reached out to other labs, practices and companies to help them make the transition.
Journal of Day to Day Orthodontics
A Zero Issue I began putting together with the help of Heidi Karl of zTwelve. The proposed quarterly magazine, published in conjunction with my association, would target labs and orthodontic practices.
Zero Issue Article List:
AOLP Conference Program
This is not my best work but I am proud of it. Two weeks before the conference, we had three sponsors and a four page program. By the day of the conference, we had 11 sponsors and a 36-page magazine.
While working 12 hour days at my lab and preparing for the conference, I wrote all of the copy for the magzine.
The Evolution of a Color Chart
25 years in the making!
The first color chart I made for my uncle’s orthodontic lab, OrthoArts Laboratory. To the left, it was done with 35mm film, a razor knife, MS Word, and a color copier.
The final version I did for my own lab, Bryn Mawr Orthodontic Laboratory. To the right, it involved hundreds of digital photos, Photoshop, and InDesign.
Journal of Dental Technology
2020 Hot List. I was honored to be named “The Educator.”
That led to the inevitable joke: “Who’s your hottie now?”
The Digital Lab Guy
This was my first foray into YouTube and videos. The training manuals that came with the new technology were awful. They did not teach anything. I began making simple videos for other labs and my clients to help ease them into the new digital world.
In 2015, I was invited by the Dental Laboratory Association of Texas (DLAT) to present a two hour lecture on the advances in orthodontic laboratories. This is the video of the lecture. The transcript can be found in the AOLP Conference Program above or on the Writing Samples page.
Voices from the Bench
I was interviewed on this industry podcast.
