Writing + Content

There are a number of factors that contribute to the success of a new product or service. To offer truly end-to-end support, a product developer must wear many different hats. I’ve found that I am most often brought onto a new project because of my technical skills, but it is my writing ability that is often more valuable. My career started in technical writing, which I was naturally good at and enjoyed. I am certain my early, very positive experiences as a technical writer helped me become successful working in a variety of roles that became gradually more and more technical over time. And as my technical skills advanced and I accumulated more experience, I found myself becoming less and less involved in producing content. But content — along with design — are some of the first things customers and stakeholders experience and they dramatically impact the rate and time to adoption. I am quite fond of writing, and I enjoy the opportunity to return to my roots — whether it’s writing user manuals, technical documentation, website content, marketing copy, or articles for trade publications and journals. Here is a small sample. To read some of my more irreverent musings, check out my blog. It’s a collection of old and new material on a seemingly impossible range of subjects that are, for the most part, not related to technology.
