Steve’s Cover Letter

Steven Blake Campbell

October 16, 2017


I am a Geophysicist with decades of experience.  I have been directly involved with field research, data acquisition, processing and quality control – as you may see by the attached resume.  Software instruction, technical documentation, marketing presentations and client interaction are also among my strengths.

I also performed a great deal of seismic modeling – FD, ray tracing, attribute analysis, source modeling, e.g.  I wrote prototype programs that expanded capabilities when in-house software was left behind by the increasing complexity of seismic operations. My survey designs have won contract bids valued at tens to hundreds of millions of dollars.  Assignments varied, but I would estimate about 10 years involvement in management.

My health is excellent and I am currently swimming about one mile per day.  Most people half my age are incapable of such effort.

I hold a Class A CDL with Haz-Mat, Tanker and Double/Triple endorsements.  I have approximately 130,000 miles of over-the-road tractor-trailer experience.

I am fluent in English and Spanish and have some familiarity with French and Russian.

I would offer this article in particular as an example of my technical writing:   Changing Energy Use in the United States

I write science and travel articles as an avocation and method to sharpen my writing skills.  You will find a collection of those at this website:

I can be available at short notice.  Any reasonable remuneration will be accepted.  I would accept a temporary or short-term position.

Remote or overseas assignments for long periods would be quite acceptable. Just get me home every once-in-a-while or re-locate me!   Travel is no problem.  I have traveled extensively in South America and I hold a current US passport and Brazilian visa both of which do not expire until 2022.
