Sydney Sullivan
BASIC
United States, Portland
Academic Writer and Researcher Sydney Sullivan, Writing & Content
My name is Sydney Sullivan and I have a great interest in your recently advertised position. I graduated with my Masters in English Literature from the University of Arizona and have been accepted into a fully-funded PhD in Education program at the University of California, Davis where I will be attending and teaching classes for the next five years. My research in Education concerns first-year college students and how to better incorporate well-being and mental health practices into writing curricula. I am interested in how digital rhetoric—such as how students communicate through social media—affect their ability to connect with people on an interpersonal level, and how we may develop conversations in the classroom that further interest students in the rhetorics of their digital lives. In two years of teaching, and six years of being a student, I have found college to be a place where many students come not only to become educated, but to learn more about themselves. I am interested in adding to conversations on social justice and digital rhetorics by helping students cultivate and participate in conversations about digital rhetoric’s place in their lives through pedagogy centered around well-being. I understand well-being as a state of mind in which we are aware, engaged, and seeking meaning in the world around us. Yet stereotypical ideas of technology seem to represent the opposite of these well-being practices: students are “disengaged” when they are on their phones, or “unaware” of others around them. My question is not, how do we get rid of technology, but rather, how can technology inculcate well-being in college spaces? I found this position extremely fitting given my background in writing and literacy. A job with a focus such as this gives me confidence that I will be in a position I am passionate about, which I hope will allow me to be a productive employee.

Dave Shively
BASIC
United States, Lahaina
Writer/Designer Dave Shively, Writing & Content
I've been a designer for 33 years and as Production Director for Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd. (1996-2020), I created, developed and managed all facets of the production department. I was responsible for producing every order, stock print and display piece. In other words, my hands have been on every print you see in the galleries and nearly every print we produced since 1996. I co-wrote, designed and developed all promotional and advertising materials. I was solely responsible for creating custom presentations for hotel projects and destination groups. I provided assistance with sales, marketing and merchandising strategies. I also assisted several local artists form their commercial identities and market their work. I took on wide-format printing technology and the advances that came with the trade to help shape the company become the most successful giclée gallery on Maui. https://www.rarebookhub.com/articles/2552/print?page_id=4607 The challenges that were brought about last year by the Covid pandemic, prompted me to end my career with Lahaina Printsellers and put my decades of design, printing and art business experience together to create my online art gallery, Maui Visions. (www.mauiartprints.com). I designed and wrote all content on my site and shot every product shown. This side project is a work in progress and I’m expanding my gallery collections and services every day.
