I receive a number of emails and voicemail messages from recruiters promoting jobs for which I would be ill-suited or have little interest. If you have a job opening which you think would appeal to me, email me with the word [2021] at the beginning of the subject line.

That way I will know that you have reviewed this information and I can give your message the special attention it deserves. (My email is available at the top of this page and on my resume. No phone calls, please.)
