Profile

In my day job, I design and write high-quality information products for complex hardware and software. On the side, I provide a range of editing and proofreading services.

I have formal background in computing and programming as well as in a range of other fields, including specific training in knowledge management, information architecture, artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, logic systems, critical thinking, human factors, and cognitive psychology. I also have expertise in public administration, policy analysis, psychology, and health sciences. I learn quickly, can produce quickly, am passionate about my users, and my work is accurate.

I am currently available for editing; please get in touch to discuss whether I would be a good fit for your project.
