Service Description

I have worked for some of the largest business software and telecomm companies in the world. I have been successful at producing documentation, peer edit and review, development of templates, mastering and using software tools to produce single-sourced outputs, and much more.

I also have several years' experience working as an independent contractor, consistently bringing in project outputs ahead of schedule and under budget.

Finally, I have an advanced degree in Technical Communication, and can provide numerous testimonials as to the quality and effectiveness of my work.

As an experienced independent contractor/consultant, I provide a wide range of high-quality technical communication and information development services.

Whether you need an online help system for your software, technical documentation for your product (online or print-oriented), specialized training for your customers, or a presence on the Web, I can provide you with the solutions you need.

I use many of latest and greatest state-of-the-art tools--such as Dreamweaver, Flash, FrameMaker, and AuthorIT, to name just a few--to provide you the best possible solution for your particular needs.
