Service Description

I graduated from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah on May 1st, 2009. I recently completed a three month internship with a neurologist as a technical writer/web designer.

During my education, I wrote many reports and papers, and received mostly A grades on them. Through my technical writing coursework, I have also had experience writing business proposals and memos, as well as various types of technical documentation.

I also have experience writing online tutorials. On two occasions, I have written volunteer tutorials for hobby websites. One of them was a beginner's overall guide to making hobby amateur Star Wars fan films, and the other was a beginner's guide to creating replicas of movie props.

In addition to that, I have been writing various technical and creative pieces of my own for several years, most of them related to my hobbies. I have written video game design documents, hobby film scripts, and tutorials on subjects from hobby video game production to movie special effects.
