Jonathan M Clark
The Ethos of Jonathan M Clark
I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry from Western Washington University. I recently completed an IBM Professional Certificate Course in Data Science. I find math, science, engineering, and technology topics fascinating. I am intrigued by aerospace engineering and chemical engineering. I am interested in process automation technologies, computer science, information flow, finance, business admin and operations management.
I have experience in parachute packing, manufacturing, operations management, and team leadership in the parachute technology and indoor skydiving worlds. I've packed thousands of parachutes, delivered world class customer service and been the go-to expert in a number of places. I have experience editing a monthly newsletter, providing tech support, writing technical manuals, and managing website content.
I am conscientious, industrious, orderly, innovative, and friendly. I seek to bear the maximum amount of responsibility that I can reliably carry. I love being productive with my time and efforts. I take pride in a job well done. I'm an avid learner in pursuit of increasing my competence, continuing my education, and discovering new things. Having an active lifestyle is important to me. I'm properly happy when I am energetically moving forwards.
I like to build things. I especially love to develop processes and complex systems that help people. I thrive in dynamic environments that involve strategy and contingency management. I enjoy exploration, discovery and innovation fueled pursuits.
I love problem solving, thinking and working with abstract ideas. I love to understand how things work.
I'm a certified airplane pilot and I love to fly! Bicycle and motorcycle adventures are good fun. I've skydived more than three hundred times. I prefer cold weather. I love to read. The shelves in my study are filled with a wide range of books. I like hiking in the Cascade Mountains. I kept honeybees for more than a decade. I like to play chess and enjoy mind puzzles of all sorts.

Looking for a Worthy Company
I'm looking for a new company to join. I want to find a engineering-driven company; one that values excellence, quality, attention-to-detail, and professional integrity above quarterly profits.
I seek a culture where the executive leadership operates in physical proximity to the factory floor, understands the technology, speaks the jargon, and champions the skill growth of the workforce.
I intend to work hard, build my career, and develop deep technical expertise.

Some of my pursuits and interests.
Good times! 304 skydives. Two demonstration jumps. USPA C-license. FAA Senior Parachute Rigger (Back and Seat Rated). More than a decade in the sport. Home Drop Zone: Skydive Snohomish.
I love 4-way formation skydiving. 18+ hours total tunnel time. Home tunnel: iFLY Seattle.
I kept bees for over a decade. There are few things tastier than honey from your own apiary (bee farm) on home baked bread!
I grew up in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. I love the forest!
I love to read books.
I've put many miles on this bicycle. I like mountain biking.
Being on two wheels is fun! I put 38k+ miles on this 2006 Kawasaki Ninja 250 motorcycle.
I have a total of five dives under my belt and have the NAUI Open Water Scuba Diver certification. Drysuits are ideal for Pacific Northwest diving.
My favorite kayaking adventures include floating the Snohomish River and a sea kayaking tour in the San Juan Islands.
I like to play chess.
