Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

My forty-year career as a technical writer and editor has spanned the fields of drone missiles, ballistic missiles, space exploration, and industrial products.

Software documents dealt with diagnostic test procedures and flowchart details. To produce camera-ready copy for electronic publishing, I worked with PageMaker, FrameMaker, and Microsoft Office applications.
