I’m a professional technical writer and certified instructional designer with ten years of IT experience. I’ve written hardware and software manuals, designed and delivered courseware, and managed writers and graphic artists. I am currently employed with CA, Inc., a Long Island-based software manufacturer previously known as Computer Associates. During my technical communication career, I’ve worked with all the popular tools – word processors, long document publishers, single-source authoring and help systems. Today, I’m exploring the rise of social technologies and looking for ways to apply them to my work. And a blog was born.
In my spare time, I’ve been trying my hand at fiction. I’ve penned five novels to date that – sadly – are unpublished. Undeterred and still hopeful, I am at work on a sixth.
