I have worked in a technical support role for several industries and love the problem-solving aspects of my work as well as helping clients maximize their productivity.

A life-long curiosity drives my interests ranging from creative writing, photo-editing, music, problem-solving puzzles such as sudoku, cooking and baking, all types of crafting, sewing and yarn arts, creative resources on the internet and learning new apps for my favorite toy...my iPhone.

comment What exactly is wrong with 'It was a dark and stormy night'?
The "dark and stormy" sentence does a lot of telling while the Dickens' passage does more showing - always better to show, IMHO. Can't you picture fog drooping on gunwales of barges? Good stuff!

comment “I have/am” what are other short ways to not repeat this in a cover letter?
@Maddy, I though of leading with an action verb also but your answer went way beyond that with great advice!
