Enhancing Productivity Through Improvements in Communication
I have experience with creating, revising, updating, and editing new or existing documents of various forms, including expertise in editing written information from engineers. Some of the material was originally written by engineers; it was my job to collate and rewrite that existing material, as well as to interview engineers, and add new material.
For the examples below, unless noted otherwise, everything is "new writing" and everything was written by me unless specified otherwise.
A note on working with editors: From 1999 to 2000, I worked in Apple's Technical Publications team, writing for various projects; my two major projects were published as books. Apple's Technical Publications team includes an editor. Thus, there were some changes made between my original text and final publication. The changes, however, were minor.
However, you may be interested in some of the wiki tutorial pages I have developed. These can be found in my wiki Help web.
I have also written how-to documents and tutorials on my own time for my own use. These have been posted in the event that others may find them to be of value.
Also while I was at IronPort Systems, I was asked to write a chapter for the IronPort Administrator's Guide. IronPort produces an "email appliance". Their users are network and mail administrators. A pre-release copy of that chapter is available to view.
As a senior technical writer in Apple's technical Publications team, I wrote a developer guide, "Inside Mac OS X: Kernel Environment". The guide was published in limited edition book form A PDF copy has been posted online at KernelEnvironment.pdf.
I have written technical articles for online and print journals. Unless noted on the page as co-authored, these all represent "new material". Links to many of these articles are here.
