Does your organization need someone with my particular combination of
skills and experience? I am now looking for my next project, to start
in September, in San Francisco or on the Peninsula.
I'm currently completing week 4 of a 12-week internal documentation
contract in Sunnyvale. I may be offered an extension, but that
remains to be seen. Even so, I'd prefer to find an interesting
project that doesn't require a daily commute into the South Bay.
I am an experienced programmer, web weaver, and writer; however, I'm
not seeking application development projects or jobs that entail
creating customer-focused materials. Instead, I seek to apply my
experience in software engineering and web technology, along with my
skills at problem solving and technical writing, to enhance
engineering productivity through improvements in communication.
I have a passion for quality (assessment and assurance), process
(creation and improvement), and documentation (of all forms). I enjoy
solving problems. I enjoy writing. I love the Web. I'm great at
reviewing (code and text) and fixing (code and text). I love working
on document mechanization tools, automated text processing, and data
I am especially interested in creating and enhancing internal
documentation in support of software engineering organizations.
In particular, I excel at:
* finding, gathering, and coalescing scattered bits of data, leading
to improved data discovery, navigability, and ease of use.
* design and implementation of reproducible processes; process review
* writing, editing, re-writing, review, and proofreading;
organization and maintenance
* asking the right questions, interviewing domain experts, and
converting random thoughts and meeting notes into meaningful and
* implementing and exploiting web technologies such as weblogs,
wikis, PHP scripts, and more, to improve Intranet content management

writing samples and much more.
What can I do for you?
