Service Description

I marshal a diverse skillset acquired over a decade's work in technical communication, publishing, education, and information technology.

The convergence of these capabilities provides me with the ability to:
- readily understand complex source materials,
- identify the needs of an audience, and
- communicate in a manner that ensures results.

I hold a graduate degree in technical communication and specialize in composing crisp technical documentation; I have extensive experience authoring user manuals, process guides, technical specifications and briefs, FAQs, and product descriptions. As an exacting, results-driven professional, I guarantee concision, clarity, and your satisfaction.

Over the course of my career I've done it all - procured multi-thousand dollar grant applications for clients both commercial and artistic; tailored raw business proposals to fit precisely with the requirements of government tenders; developed and deployed online and in-class learning materials; cranked out countless articles; and professionally proofed book-length publications.

I'm also an accomplished practitioner of persuasive rhetoric, with a particular knack for crafting killer digital copy. Looking for words that can sell something or persuade someone? Look no further. Need web text SEO-optimized, or direct marketing drafted? Drop me a line.

But please, don't take my word for it - have a look at my portfolio to see for yourself what I can accomplish.
