Service Description

I have a rich experience in technical writing, content writing, and instructional design.

I am familiar with style guides, having closely worked with the Manual of Style for Technical Publications (MSTP) and the Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS).

As a technical writer, I have authored technical content for a wide audience, from a highly technical audience attempting to pass the Microsoft Certified Professional examinations to the general population who purchase a simple printer. In addition, I have authored test cases and use cases for software projects.

As an Instructional Designer, I have authored both e-learning and instructor-led training content for Microsoft. Deliverables include animation sequences, PowerPoint slides and animation, multiple choice questions, instructor notes, student notes, demonstrations, and sort games.

I can provide references on request.
