About the Tech-Writer

Home About Articles Graphics Pens

I’ve pursued technical and business communication writing as an outlet for a life-long interest in writing. I made the decision following a military career – where I was involved in intelligence research and analysis – and a stint in the defense contracting business. With the children on their own, it seemed an opportune time to venture into this career interest. To date I’ve had the opportunity to write a variety of material, including:

  • Computer system documentation (system/software technical reference and user manuals),
  • Corporate policy and procedure publications, Human Resources administration and regulations, physical and computer security policy,
  • Training programs and supporting materials (customer service, software),
  • Comprehensive research and analysis studies for U.S. Government agencies (15-300 pgs.) and private research firms,
  • Business proposals, “White Papers,” Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and marketing communications/sales presentations,
  • Electronic Equipment operation manuals,
  • Web content, and
  • Wireless industry research and analysis (White Papers & Tutorials).

In addition to the primary focus, you'll find the site has an area devoted to graphic arts. I've found these kinds of skills useful to a tech writer and it leads into the calligraphy topic. There's also a part of the site devoted to aerial reconnaissance and photo interpretation, a part of "my prior life" in the intelligence community. The Alpha-Omega link (www.aowatch.com) is there to take you to another set of interests of mine that you may find at least amusing.

I’d appreciate submission of articles that will broaden the coverage of the various subjects and will insure appropriate credit for each submission posted. Please feel free to provide input and feedback concerning the site too. I welcome any ideas that will help this effort achieve the basic objectives.

Thanks for visiting the site and please return. I’ll be posting new material on a monthly basis. Don’t forget to check back for release of my book in 2007.
