My parents say I was inquisitive from a small child. I had to discover the function of every knob, switch and button I came across. It didn't always go well.
My first technical story was about a small boy's internal anatomy from the viewpoint of an entity travelling around inside his body. I was in first grade.
My first drawing was of a space ship.
Jacques Cousteau was my childhood hero.
I am motivated by a 67-year old German friend, who grew up in the aftermath of World War II Germany, whose response to 'We don't have that' was 'Let's make one.'
Curiosity about technology and how it can benefit humans is part of my DNA. I began my technical author/writing career in a leading technology company in the 1970s. I expanded that experience and honed my skills through years of writing about hot products, innovative technologies and the companies that create them. I help communicate what smart people have done into how it benefits overall society and their customers—whether those customers are everyday consumers, engineers of next-generation components and systems, software developers or executive leadership.
My education in technology, my work in writing and communication and my experiences as a business and agency owner allow me to grasp the technology deeper and go beyond the words to understand the purpose of the message. I understand both the how and the why of what needs to be said.
No client is too small or too big. I've helped the smallest service startups (including a carpet cleaning business) and technology innovators to multi-national, world-leading corporations. I create marketing and sales content for print, web, video and film, and in-person or online presentation. I've written about a myriad of ground-breaking technologies, often as part of a public launch. What people are doing is fascinating, and what you are doing deserves to heard and seen.
I'm ready to do something really cool with the amazing ideas you've come up with.
