Service Description

I am formally trained as an engineer, but the many demands of the high-tech arena have allowed me to develop many other skills. I migrated to technical writing over 20 years ago as the needs arose and found a real need for high-quality technical documentation. My diverse background gives me an excellent understanding of many areas, including computer hardware and software, electronics, human interfaces, data processing, and even desktop publishing. I am adept at documenting and explaining things in a clear, concise, and accurate manner, whether something I have designed (for instance, some office automation software that others will use) or something others have designed (such as a complex medical instrument). I am very good at finding the information I need, either by interviewing other designers and users or by conducting my own research, and then reshaping that information into an easily understandable form. I also have a very sharp set of eyes and strong linguistic skills, so I excel at reviewing documents on both the copyediting and proofreading levels.

In addition to technical writing, I am also skilled in various areas of data processing and in designing software to automate repetitive tasks, thereby freeing up the time of highly skilled people and allowing them to be more productive. I am very experienced with the Microsoft Office suite of tools and use that for most of my work.
