Joined Mar 3 2010
I have served the Professional Relations Division as Councilor for five terms. My focus has been improving the career services, particularly job-hunting services, the ACS offers members. I have also written on these subjects in ACS magazines and the ACS book "Career Management for Scientists and Engineers." I have written on these subjects for a wide variety of non-ACS publications as well. As a chemist, I have developed 16 comercial products used primarily in oil and gas production and in paper manufacture and paper recycling. I hold 30 U.S. patents and have written 130 peer-reviewed publications. These days I am a full-time, self-employed technical writer and consultant. I have written over 1,200 articles on science, engineering, job-hunting, career management and other subjects publsihed in magazines, newspapers and encyclopedias.
