I am a technical writer/programmer writer/content developer who specializes in creating high-quality technical content from complex software architecture. My excellent communication and organizational skills allow me to bring clarity to any project.
With over 14 years’ experience as a software developer, I have engineered strong, data-driven web applications using the Microsoft .NET Framework. With my technological background, I bring a unique insight into technical documentation creation. I understand complicated technology and can transcribe it into documentation that communicates clearly with the end user. In addition, I have a thorough understanding of the software development life cycle (SDLC) and Agile methodologies.
I believe in giving back to the technology community by helping software developers learn through the content I create. I am active on the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) where I contribute to several blogs and on Microsoft TechNet as a technical wiki contributor. I also support Microsoft’s open source technical documentation on GitHub. For my efforts, I have been a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) since 2015.
I remain passionate about furthering my education. I recently completed a certification in Technical Communication and am co-organizer of my local Microsoft .NET user group meetup. As a public speaker on emerging technologies, I talk at conferences across North America and at meetups throughout Ontario. I am also a technical reviewer for multiple technology books.
