Resume/C.V.
As a young man, I was pursuing an education as a nuclear physicist when that was interrupted by the Vietnam War.

Service Description

I am conscientious and professional. I will only consider a project complete when my customer is utterly satisfied. Simply put, I want your repeat business!

Science and engineering topics are clearly my strength. My first major task as an adult was to assemble and proofread the operation manual for a nuclear powered Navy ship. I have spent years writing and editing work practices, operational procedures, maintenance procedures, and safety manuals in both a military and a manufacturing environment, and later, equipment operation manuals in an OEM environment. I recently designed and updated a company's AutoCAD standards manual, and installed it on their corporate intranet in WIKI format.

I have worked with operating manuals and design standards for over 20 years as an end user, and another 15 as a designer. This experience in varying aspects of technology has given me a very practical, two pronged approach, that is the basis of the "Carson Touch" that I apply to every project that I undertake.
