Work Experience:
Natural ability as a writer, editor & photographer provided gainful employment (late 60s-mid 70s) with the El Paso Times (sportswriter) and El Paso Herald-Post (copy editor, feature writer and entertainment reviewer, as well as a couple of years with Harris & Harris Public Relations as a copywriter during my college years. Worked full time and earned two degrees at U.T. El Paso. After college, worked as a technical writer/technical specialist at Continental Water/Millipore corporation for 3 plus years and was a technical writer and editor for Gearhart Industries in the early 80s in Fort Worth, Texas. Founded Gene Crouch Graphic Arts Services shortly after leaving Gearhart with skills I learned there operating Compugraphic Photo-Typesetting Equipment. Loved the work and was quite good at it and milked that cow for as long as there were people needing high-quality photo typesetting services, which was the late 90s. By that time everyone and his dog had a desktop computer and while the output from many of those systems couldn't match the quality I could produce, it certainly was cheaper. Then I decided it was time to get rich and become a commodities trader. In this avocation I discovered that I possessed the uncanny ability to pick the wrong side of well over 90% of all my trades. Shortly after losing my house and all my money to the commodity brokers in Chicago and New York, I moved to the desert in Southern New Mexico and became a desert philosopher. That worked pretty well for a few years. I built a comfortably shelter out of used tires, practiced stonemasonry, gold prospecting, gardening and landscaping, and in times of great need edged back into the job market as the best mail clerk Ruidoso Downs Ever had, Garden Specialist at Home Depot in Alamogordo and the most educated grounds-keeper ever to work for Lockheed-Martin on the White Sands Missile Range. Now I just need to earn a few bucks from time to time and am available to help you with your writing/editing
