An artistic approach to creative quality

San Jose

Overview

I find myself critiquing everything I read, either for grammar, spelling issues, or content. Having worked in a previous life for a major software company doing quality assurance, I not only know how to use most software packages right out of the box, but have also had experience with software design and programming. I approach everything with a creative flair - I enjoy seeing multiple sides to everything and try to be open to the merits of any viewpoint.

Service Description

If there is a children's book series worth reading, the older two have already read all of the them. All of them are computer literate, and have been since before kindergarten. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have a wonderful relationship with each of them, even though they are each completely different personalities.

I have been using computers since I was at least eight years old in the mid-seventies, and have watched them evolve from the Apple II+ my parents purchased in 1979 to the computers we use at home now (we have both Mac and Windows machines). Technology is indeed amazing.

I have worked in software qualtiy assurance, done...
