Writing and Editing

I deliver content that speaks to audiences beyond technical writing or basic marketing/PR copy. While most established high tech corporations have both types of writers in-house, marketing/PR writers concentrate on their specialties, and technical writers like to focus on the tech. I have been writing/editing for 25 years, and a programmer and systems integrator for longer, so I can fill that gap; this is particularly important for B2B companies, where either customers or in-house readers may want to know the features as well as the benefits.

Content development: as a content developer I edit, rewrite, and define content for high tech companies as well as the entertainment, health/wellness, legal, medical and transportation sectors, from advertising to white papers and books. I also map out broad SEO strategies for companies (a long-time skill-set that ties into content architecture), and deliver SEO writing from user-facing content to low-level structuring.

My particular capabilities include:
  • Making content accessible to the target audience
  • Bringing benefits and features into focus
  • Organizing large or confusing bodies of information into a user-friendly structure, both online and in print

Time zones I work in: most of the world. While I am located in the San Francisco Bay area of Northern California, many of my clients are on the U.S. East Coast or in Europe, so I am normally online at 9 AM U.S. Eastern time, and available by email or phone by that time. I have also worked with Asian clients on a long-term basis.

Varieties of English: I am a native speaker and writer in American, British, and Canadian English, and a fluent writer in Australian/NZ English.
