SPROUTED WHEAT
(Production Manager)

Wow! Sprouted Wheat has got me using some dormant skills and some familiar skills to make things happen! I was asked to manage dry food production for the company, mainly to streamline processes and determine better methods for mass production. This includes changing manufacturing processes and getting (or custom building) new equipment for the tasks. This has required extensive research and working with scientists, consultants, current and former employees and even learning basic chemistry to understand how to improve the products. Because of my background, part of my job includes assisting the marketing department with advertising, packaging, and even tweaking the products themselves!

SKILLS USED:
• Production Assessment
• Production Management
• External Team Collaboration (Chemists, engineers, administrators, et al))
• Adobe Creative Suite
• Research Techniques

WGU (MBA - This is here twice to balance the two sections. I'm still working on the MBA)

While working full-time, I’ve been taking online courses from Western Governor’s Univeristy, hoping to finish my MBA in the next year or so.

With the changing trends in businesses, having a solid understanding of business principles has become a necessity to navigate these trends and come out on top.

SKILLS REFINED:

• Business Principles
• Project Management
• Time & Asset Management

JUN 2019 - JUL 2021

CONSERVICE
(Billing Manager)

Conservice was a great chance to get back to one of my great loves – people. While at Conservice, I was responsible to manage a portfolio of multi-family properties for companies in Texas, California and Florida. This management included extensive customer service opportunities to the people at those properties and detailed billing management to be calculated each month. When I left Conservice, I was responsible for the management of over 13k units. I also learned to work internally with multiple teams assigned to the same properties for other reasons, and learned the importance of documenting progress for other teams to be able to reference for these accounts.

SKILLS USED:
• Remote Working
• Verbal Communication – Clients would call for assistance multiple times daily
• Written Communication – Internal emails and chats were used to track progress on projects
• Microsoft Office (primarily Excel, including daily use/tweaking of macros)
• Team Collaboration

CHAPTER THREE GAMES
(Creative Director)

Chapter Three was a change in so many ways from my previous career roles. I worked as the coordinator between the creatives, the admins and our customers. In a nutshell, I took the projects from a client’s idea through a creative team of artists and designers until we ended up with a finished product. This involved teams of up to 30 people on projects ranging from simple card games to complex tabletop games and related marketing pieces.

SKILLS USED:
• Adobe Creative Suite
• Writing – Short & Long Copy
• Design & Layout
• Manufacturing
• Product Branding
• Project Management
• Thinking outside-the-box (pun intended)

2002 - 2011

BYU (English & Manufacturing)

As a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, I studied both English and Manufacturing. On the English side, I was taught by renowned authors such as Rick Walton and Brandon Sanderson and on the Manufacturing side I studied with industry giants like Brent Strong.

While English and Manufacturing don’t typically go hand-in-hand, it paved the way for me to liaise between creative and manufacturing teams easily.

SKILLS REFINED:
• Writing, Short & Long Copy
• Training
• Project Coordination
• Time & Asset Management

AUG 2012 - AUG 2014

RED C GALLERY (Gallery Director)

As the Gallery Director, I was responsible for organizing and managing all internal events (employee training, sales and marketing) and external events (community shows, classes and workshops). I was in charge of taking the ideas of employees, customers and industry experts and making them successful and profitable shows and promotions.

SKILLS USED:
• Project Management
• Guerilla Marketing
• Human Resources
• Time & Asset Management
• Creative Thinking
• Communication

2000-2002

UVU (Communications)

At Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah, I started my college career studying Communications (Writing), but in the process was introduced to speech and verbal communication. While I kept writing as my primary focus, I learned principles of communication that I’ve used in every endeavor since then. As a fun side note, I managed to take 1st place in the Speech Invitation during my final year at UVU.

SKILLS REFINED:
• Communication, Spoken & Written
• Training
• Creative Thinking
• Time & Asset Management
• When to dig your heels in and when to just shut up and sit down

SEP 2002 - DEC 2011

REPARTEE GALLERY & FRAMEWORK (Director of Sales & Marketing)

Being raised in an artist’s home, I was surrounded by art and creativity from the time I was old enough to speak. When the opportunity came to work on the business side of creativity, I jumped at the chance. Working with Repartee on the business side of art gave me a perspective from both sides of the design coin – the creative side and the bottom line.

At Repartee, we practiced the tried and true business and marketing model while continually jumping outside the box with new business ideas and guerrilla marketing campaigns that stretched our customer base beyond the norm…and we had a blast doing it!

Some of the greatest lessons learned at Repartee, however, weren’t from the successful promotions and home run ideas, but from those ideas that were less-than-stellar and took more work and creative thinking to pull off.

SKILLS USED:
• Teaching & Training
• Creative Thinking
• Project Management
• Adobe Creative Suite
• Product Branding
• Communication
• Sales & Customer Service
• Thinking outside-the-box

THREE (ISH) TESTIMONIALS

At a glance, this seems to be spot on. What I mean to say is, ‘You are the man!’

Jericho Cline - Marketing Director at Season's Medical

Creativity is who you are! Making games is easy for you and you don’t even know it!

Thomas Scott - Owner and CEO at Brusa Distributing

Bryun is the reason there is hope in this world for the little guy. I’m not just saying that because Bryun has blackmail on me and threatened to break my knees if I didn’t. He is a hero and example to us all. Can I go now?
