Career Profile

I create and maintain different types of technical content while naturally integrating with varying kinds of software-development teams. I easily engage with different departments to get the information that I need. I create varying types of content, for example, user guides, technical descriptions, embedded documentation, and user-interface copy. My content is designed for different types of audiences, ranging from beginners to experts in various professions.

To create, I use everything from Markdown and XML to Paligo and Microsoft Word.

My expertise lies in simplifying the complicated so that anybody can understand it.

I use standards and frameworks to write briefly and consistently to make humans quickly and thoroughly understand what they read.
