WORK EXPERIENCE

SPROUTED WHEAT
(Production Manager)

Wow! Sprouted Wheat has 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 included changing manufacturing processes and acquiring (or custom building) equipment for the tasks. This position 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 has included working the marketing department on advertising, packaging, and branding for the products.

SKILLS USED:
• Product Assessment
• Production Coordination
• External Team Collaboration (Chemists, engineers, developers, et al))
• Internal Team Management
• Research Techniques

Rexburg Farmers Market

I’m putting this on the Education side because I don’t get paid to do this. I volunteer with the Farmer’s Market each year to plan their weekly events and activities.

We’ve run contests, charity events, single and group activities as we work to get families involved in free spring, summer and fall activities!

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.

This involved teams of up to 30 people on projects ranging from simple card games to complex tabletop games and related marketing pieces.

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 while 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 effectively.

SKILLS REFINED:
• Writing, Short & Long Copy
• Project Coordination
• Time & Asset Management (I worked full-time while attending classes)

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:

SEP 2002 - DEC 2011

REPARTEE GALLERY & FRAMEWORK (Gallery Manager)

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?
