Service Description

With my background as a technical communicator, I can write to any audience from end users to programmers. I have documented software for virtually every industry, and feel comfortable learning new material. Typically, I do not require a great deal of hand holding when ramping up on projects.

Although I am an excellent technical writer, it would be rewarding and exciting to have new kinds of writing challenges. I am hoping to return to my love of creative writing and literary journalism.
