As I started my 2018 career sabbatical and enumerated the significant chapters of my life so far, the sabbatical period happened to come out as the 12th chapter, and hence the internet domain name. There was no greater meaning intended beyond this accounting; however, it did not go unnoticed that the number 12 figures prominently in the Bible and other religious texts, in the number of months in the Western calendar, and in the hours of the night and day—and I took this to be an auspicious sign regarding the importance of the time away from a “normal” job.

To learn more about my professional journey, you may download this one-page summary of my career maze, which is intentionally not focused on accomplishments in the sense of a resume but instead illuminates the decision points and paths taken, or not taken, along the way in my journey. For a more traditional view, there is my LinkedIn profile along with my Tweets. To learn more about my many interests and recent knowledge discoveries refer to this Mega Resource List.

I am currently seeking employment in a traditional “professional” role, where I am targeting Business Analyst, Product Owner, Customer Success Manager, and/or Knowledge Management roles. I am also open to a new collar job that allows me to be more hands-on (irrespective of my college degrees) and fuels my passion for manufacturing, lean six sigma, supply chain and logistics, additive manufacturing (3D printing), robotics, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) — at this point in my life, it is all about the mission and the team, and not at all about title.

I live in the Boston North Shore area and I am also comfortable working remotely, albeit this is not my first choice.

You may contact me regarding employment opportunities, or anything else, via email to Ray [at] The12thChapter [dot] com. I look forward to hearing from you.
