Full Biography

I am an IT professional with a strong background in both Technical Writing and Application Development who is looking to leverage my superior writing skills into a career in Technical Writing.

When a software release is ready for deployment, and Release Notes are needed, I am experienced in creating such a document. In addition, I am capable of improving rough drafts of technical documentation into a finished product. I accomplish these goals by conveying technical concepts in plain English, and by using my editing and proofreading skills to their fullest. In addition, I am adept at adapting my documentation to the needs of its intended audience. Finally, I am a versatile writer who can craft non-technical content as well.

With my dual background in both programming and documentation, I am especially qualified to be a Technical Writer. Having been a developer for so long has made me very familiar with the process of creating user-friendly software, which enables me to take the same approach when creating end-user documentation.

In addition, I am also willing to take on a position that involves only editing and proofreading, whether or not the subject matter in question is of a technical nature.
