volunteering what I can - skillset for breadman


I have no money or stuff to offer (in tiny apt on food stamps) but I can offer time, tools and expertise. Here's stuff I have experience in and if anyone sees uses for them, definitely find me and let me know. I'll be on site often if not daily. I don’t want to join a handful of teams, but I can be called upon any time to make use of any of this:

Fire Safety fireman 2 years
Food Safety certified food safety trainer 2 years
Security event security experience and general site security
Medic first responder for 2 yrs
Site Layout commercial real estate development 4 years, experience with Renaissance faires and boy scout camps
Ordained Minister
Government - Local I was very active with local government before I came to Vegas
Carpentry/building decades of experience and can build nearly anything (furniture, structures, etc)
General handyman I did this professionally for a while and can tinker with anything but engines
Public Speaking radio host once, teacher for a few years and pitched projects to investors local govt many times.
Bread I’ve been making fresh bread for a long time now and have been bringing some to occupy events – I can show others how,
it’s so easy and cheap.

just ask around on site for the breadguy if you think of a use for any of that.

Wow, a true Renaissance Man! Awesome! When you say "on site" do you mean the Occupy Site or the Website?

I'd like to kick this post back to the top - I'm looking to be useful to occupy again. I know there are a bunch of Occupy factions/splinters/affinities in Vegas but any group that wants to be in the face of the 1% (without breaking the law) or help the 99% can call on me for whatever needs doing.

I should also add to the original post that I'm pretty good at fixing/building stuff and making lists to make things more efficient

@admin - when I originally posted I was referring to the physical Area99 site but now I'm less attached to any one group or location.

Breadman, if you can make it to the New Occupy Culture meeting tomorrow at 4pm (send a message to the admin for directions) that would be awesome, we could use a guy with your skill set in the group!

What's a New Occupy Culture meeting?
I've been out of the loop for a while and I don't know what that's about. If it's possible for someone who's more computer savvy to toss in a link that'd be awesomesauce.

I have no interest in being in any groups that make try to make leadership decisions and try to chart a course for the group, but I'd like to be an asset that can be called upon when needed.

Anyone who needs something can always send me an email here. I don't check it every day but I'll pitch in in any way I can. Tod has my number if there's some kind of crisis that needs immediate effort.

You got an empty couch?

I have a couch that's usually empty half the day but not sure what you're askin for. With 3 small children I'm super-careful who I invite to stay in our home and with 5 people in a 2-bedroom apartment there's not much room but that's not to say it's impossible. Shoot me a private message and we'll see what we can do. =]

I am a worker, I work 12-hour shifts, and I consider myself part of Las Vegas as much as anyone. I certainly want you all here. I wish there were more people involved and I would like to see the strip occupied in such a major way that the world would be forced to take notice. I am going to bring by some kind of supplies when I can to the occupation site. Keep up the good work and remember that we truly are the 99% and we do have the power even if we are not exercising it at the moment. I firmly believe that things are beginning to change all over the world and the workers -- meaning everyone like me who has to work for a living, as opposed to the wealthy elite and their corporate operatives -- will prevail. By the way Mr. "Anonymous" (ROTFLOL) who posted elsewhere: who exactly is the "we" you refer to that doesn't want this protest and is looking into the funding, etc? Whoever it is, I know one thing -- we of the 99% outnumber you! I also know that when 99% of the people go up against the 1%, the 1% will certainly lose.

About Occupy Las Vegas & OccupyLV is the independent web portal of the Occupy Las Vegas Movement, in full support of the #OWS and 99% Movements.

We are the 99% of People who have not benefited from the current system. We are part of the global revolution and so are you.

We will not squander this amazing opportunity to save the world.
