I am a professional writer and editor with 35 years experience. My specialty is technical writing, the field in which I began my career in 1979. I have written user and operator manuals, business and technical requirements, and system analyses and training programs for a broad range of companies from small family firms to Fortune 500 heavyweights.
My signature skill is the ability to act as a bridge between technical information and the non-technical reader. I can render complex subjects in clear, plain language and translate business objectives into concise and actionable requirements and specifications.
I also have extensive practical experience in B-to-B and B-to-C documentation such as newsletters, marketing copy, scripting for presentations as well as video, audio and demo voice overs. I have written for newspapers and magazines, newsletters and web sites, and blogs and forums on a myriad topics. My breadth of experience makes me a quick study on any new topic, and my depth of practice makes me a professional in my craft.
All these skills I also bring to the task of editing in any capacity. I can edit for typos and grammar, voice and style, dramatic impact and comedic flair, clarity and accuracy.
As to the “Etcetera”, I write just about everything else at one time or another – fiction, poetry, drama, jokes and sketches, prayers, anecdotes, speeches and to-do lists. I was once an accomplished musician, but time and tide have washed from me those skills except what remains in my brain, and what I can tease out of a ukulele or spirit drum. I am a semi-skilled stage actor and better voice actor. This makes me a good candidate for both in-person presentations and voice-overs. These days I do all this for myself and a few close friends, but the long experience and current practice add these capabilities to my repertoire.
I am available for freelance assignments and welcome your inquiries for any project you have in mind, large or small.
Thank for your interest
