SUMMARY: Hello there. I’m called Theophilus Floyd. I’m a son, husband and father. I love my children, and they always have and always will come first. To that end, I’ve always tried my best to obtain employment that allows me to be there for them, to assist them if they need help, and to take them to games or activities. For that reason, I founded a graphic design business in 2005 that eventually branched out into web design and web hosting, and most recently, acquired an antique store and added a bakery, coffee shop and bookstore.
ABOUT: I am a small business owner of an Antique Mall, Bookstore and Coffee Shop under one roof. I’m very skilled in client and vendor relations; talented in building and maintaining partnerships with business and personal clients. I’m a highly experienced accounting manager, with over five years of accounts payable/receivable, Human Resources, Payroll and general QuickBooks background. I’m more than able to handle balancing of banking to QuickBooks, as well as reconciliation, taxes, new employee setup, Federal, State and Local Tax documentation and general business bookkeeping. I’m also a creative and multi-talented designer with extensive experience in advertising, marketing and print design. I excel at collaborative and interpersonal skills; dynamic team player with outstanding written and verbal communication skills. I have extensive experience in Customer Service, both as an employee, and as an employer. Lastly, I do a lot of content creation including creating blog posts for other companies. I review and correct manuscripts, polish writing, correct grammar and ensure that there is a good flow within the writing. I have even created my share of manuals from simple 16 page booklets, to multiple 5″ ring binders. I love writing, and actively seek opportunities that will engage my creative talents!
I currently put my skills to use at Floyd Enterprises, Inc., where I help craft non-boring designs, content and web presence for our ever-increasing user base. I also am helping to build our visual and multi-media content strategy. For my web design customers, I make use of Floyd Hosting in order to offer my customers the best price on hosting, and in order to enable quick and easy troubleshooting on my end.
For my nearby graphic design and web design customers, I make use of my skills in photography to capture the perfect image for the customer’s needs. I travel all over the State of Kansas in order to capture the perfect sunset, the hills, or to take photos at my customer’s place of business in order to integrate it with their design.
I’m not a super active blogger, but when I do blog, it’s generally about Linux and privacy concerns. I write blogs for several other companies, so my own blog suffers. If you’d like to have a look, you can click “Blog” in the navigation bar, or just click HERE.
Last, but certainly not least, I’ve published a couple of books that are of interest to very particular crowds.
I compiled the “Eastern Prayer Book” as a general liturgical prayer book of the Eastern Orthodox and the Byzantine Rite Catholic Churches arranged according to the daily flow of prayer life, including general prayers and the Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom. It was put together in modern English, and comes from both Greek and Russian sources. It was put together to ensure that there was an inexpensive, accurate modern language prayer book available for those congregations who prefer not to speak King James English. It is available in paperback and in Kindle format.
I reworked a classic prayer book “Book of Pastoral Prayer” with full permission from the original authors (though it was well out of copyright) and have added several useful sections from the “Book of Common Prayer” with the permission of Church Publishing, the publishing branch of the Episcopal Church in the United States. This work, originally authored by Ernest Fremont Tittle, is of particular significance to me. My father, the late Reverend James D. Floyd (may his memory be eternal) carried a copy in his breast pocket and consulted it often for prayer. I grew up hearing prayers from its pages, and when my father reposed in the Lord, I received his copy. It is in his memory, and that of my mother who was a driving force behind his ministry, that I dedicated this modernized and revised version. My father began the work of modernizing in himself. Throughout his copy are hand scrawled notes where he modernized the language, added passages for ladies, and made a few prayers more inclusive. In this respect, he was years ahead of his time, even within the Methodist Church.
I’m always on the lookout for freelance opportunities, requests for book reviews, web/graphic design projects, or just to grab a refreshing drink with someone interesting. If you have a project we could collaborate on, get in touch! I look forward to hearing from and working with you!
