As for what I do, I copied and pasted my resume below. In short, I have mostly directed projects for work up until this point. I am a creative problem-solver, I am great and collaborating efforts to accomplish tasks, and I am a good salesperson. I think of myself as a pretty well-rounded person and very adaptable. Here is my resume:
