While at Oilgear I worked closely with engineers and marketing members to develop scripts that addressed the diverse information needs of prospect buying teams made of quality assurance, production, engineering , and purchasing personnel. Upon finishing a script I would travel to customer locations to acquire footage of Oilgear products reliably performing in demanding industrial environments, and document the quality and productivity gains realized by Oilgear customers. Upon arriving back in Milwaukee, I'd edit my footage on a 3/4 editing suite. For higher end videos I worked with Jeff Taylor, Visuals-Plus, and Alan Foral at Creative Marketing for Beta Cam Effects. I also used Milwaukee Sound to record Jerry Taff or Jim Carrier voice overs and audio sweetening. Since Oilgear I worked at Cooper Power Systems for 7 yrs. as Sr. Technical Writer in Switchgear Products. Then continued on to documentation/training work at GE Medical and Northwestern Mutual.
Yes, I have a very interesting position at the Orion Group in Sussex. I am an Internet Marketing Analyst and assist our clients in development of authentic, shareable, rich content, aid in SEO optimization, and recommend social media strategies to assist our customer in reaching their business and marketing goals.
I am a former video producer/marketing communications specialist for the Oilgear Company of Milwaukee. While at Oilgear I worked with an number of ITVA Service providers to assist in post production of my product training and marketing videos.
