Think Mills(tm) -- Biographical Sketch

Richard G. Mills
        With nearly 30 years (but, then, who's counting?) of writing, editorial, business, educational, and computer-training experience,  Richard G. Mills can offer you and/or your organization a wide range of knowledge and talent.  Whether you need just copy or layouts and graphics, personal training or training materials, audiovisual, multimedia, or print, just think Mills!         Richard first began to hone his layout talents in Naperville, Illinois, as editor of his college weekly newspaper during his sophomore and junior years.  In 1969, after two years of teaching experience, he accepted a position as writer/art-director for a Chicago-based educational travel service, writing and designing travel brochures for specialized group tours throughout Europe, the then Eastern Bloc countries, and various other locales of educational and/or newsworthy interest.         In 1970, Mills became a writer and editor of home-study courses -- from air conditioning to algebra!  He moved to Chicago in 1971.  There, he went on to become a mild-mannered assistant editor of over half a dozen insurance magazines (by day) and a keyboard-backup man for an improvisational theatre group (at night).  After about five months in Los Angeles and seven months in San Francisco, he returned to Chicago, continuing his free-lance editing there for a year.         In 1974, Richard accepted a position with the Society for Visual Education as a writer/producer of multimedia instructional modules -- which utilized his writing, musical, and humor talents with such hit characters as "Sassie, the Wonder Dog," "The Lone Stranger and Pronto," "Whiz Ms.," "Super-Fred,"  and (makes his mark with a Z) "Zero" to teach math, not to mention his song sung by a TV "soap opera" character, "[Got the] Divisor Blues" (with vocal-trio and piano backup provided by Mills, himself!).  Sample dialogue-- Woman (of her husband's will): "...and he left the remainder to charity. Blues singer: "How noble of him! Woman: "Charity was his secretary!"  Blues singer: "Oh."         As a free lance since 1976, Mills has written and edited a variety of multimedia and print materials for various business and educational organizations in Chicago and across the country.  He has written two published self-help books (one on home maintenance and repair and one on skin care).  He reviewed over two dozen books for Booklist magazine.  And he has taught at all grade levels -- including post-high school -- mainly English, but also music, math, and foreign languages (none of which he actually speaks).         In the mid-1980s, Richard became interested in computers and has since taught himself several word-processing and graphics programs on three different computer systems, wired together his own doubled-up computer system, and written various computer programs -- including a talking, voice-recognition calendar and budgeting system in BASIC for personal use and a combination file-info and invoicing database program in WordPerfect Corporation's Data-Perfect for a Momence, Illinois, lawyer's office.         For the past few years, he has been teaching computer-literacy courses at the local community college (in both Mac and IBM until the college removed their Mac labs).  He has also held computer-software seminars and taught a pre-college-writing course for the college and teaches a high school remedial math course offered by the college.  He has done corporate computer training for Computer Training Associates, been called upon by clients to do computer hardware and software installation, and does beginners' computer setup, training, and consulting work.         Of course, being a generalist in this age of specialization can cause some problems.  As Mills quotes from a newsletter he wrote for one of his clients, "Keeping up with the changes can be a full-time job!"  But you can make it his job, not yours! Why not e-mail him right now while you think of it so he can start contributing his talents to you or your organization?
