Communication is complex business nowadays in a world of constant change.
Don't chance it by giving this responsibility to amateurs.
Explaining software for specialized domains, developing multi-purpose websites, disseminating health information for specialists, targeting journalism efficiently, building MOOCs on behalf of university professors, or getting at other niche audiences effectively is difficult in the best of times.
Whether you need technical writing, website content or translation work, or a whole new information architecture, you are definitely not going to call Ghostbusters.
Organizations often come to me towards the end of a project with acute technical communication needs that were neglected during the course of development.
I help clients, then, take a step back, before quickly getting back on track, with a project plan, a course of action, and proposed deliverables, all in short order; along with time and cost estimates.
After some consultation, I can quickly put together a team, and get busy surpassing expectations.
Having lived through generations of operating systems, software applications, and hardware, the one thing I now know is change is the only constant.
I therefore have developed a unique best of breed approach to the tools I use for any new project, leaning heavily on open source tools wherever possible, balancing cost, development speed, with an emphasis on long term maintainability from the client's perspective.
I am a writer, web developer, and consultant with over 15 years experience. I have served small, medium, and up to very large clients. These include billion dollar tech companies such as Autodesk and the highest profile production houses like Moment Factory: who worked on the Super Bowl show with Madonna.
