Positions list - industry term help

I am working on a new business card and am trying to figure out how to categorize things. I am basically a jack of all trades with indie production, but won`t use that term for obvious reasons. I also don`t want to put down 'all aspects of film production' because it sounds cocky, what key group words could I use? Obviously I don`t do EVERYTHING, but I do cover alot of positions like : writer, director, producer, AD, AC, director of photography, some lighting work, boom operator, sound mixer, stunts and choreography, editing, set design, set photography... so you can see it is hard to figure out how to sum it up. I know there are terms like Above and Below the line, but are those appropriate? I'm a bit lost on how to tackle it. Any guidance would be appreciated!

And yes I am aware I should focus myself in on something, but I am not at the stage to make the decision yet of what that will be, I enjoy it all and welcome work in any of the positions. Man this is tough.

"Producer" is usually the best way to sum all that up.
