A talented technical writer with a background in data network engineering.  Employed by major technology companies providing internet-based solutions for both local and multinational enterprises.  Experienced in documenting Content Delivery Networking and Cloud-based solutions.


  • Created and compiled the documentation required for my client to pass the Amazon Web Services Managed Services Proficiency audit.  Created the demonstration script required to present those skills required to be shown rather than documented.

  • Authored a series of blog posts that were published by a Synthetic Monitoring enterprise.

  • Created content for internal and partner training. Delivered training when a Subject Matter Expert was unavailable.

  • Created 37 documents of varying technical complexity in 9 months, using both standard and Information Mapping techniques as best applied to each subject.  All documentation was delivered on or before the due date in order to meet contractual obligations with a Licensed Customer of the network product.

  • Organized training for three separate partners and created the content to be presented at these training sessions. Survey results for these training sessions were consistently at 90+% approval ratings.


  • Created white papers, blogs and slicks for marketing initiatives.


  • Created all documentation for the video conferencing service for the BTInfonet product line, including Operations & Support manuals, design documents, and dial plans. 

  • Wrote the User manual and Administrator’s guide for the Center of Excellence, Los Angeles.   This cloud-computing environment reduced equipment duplication, significantly decreased development costs, and minimized organizational cost through product standardization and tracking of hardware and software.

  • Created the Operations & Support manuals, configuration guides and network management guidelines required to support the project that replaced outdated network equipment. The completion of this project saved the company several million dollars in hardware maintenance and software licensing fees

  • Represented the Design Engineering group in all ISO-9000 audits.  The group’s documentation always passed the audit process.

Don't Be Fooled

  • When selling, do not put your home address in your ad.
  • To avoid scams, buy and sell with people you can meet locally, in person.
  • When meeting with someone you don't know, meet in a public place. If that's not possible, have a buddy with you. Also, carry a cell phone; if you feel unsafe, you can call a trusted friend, and stay on the line.
  • Never give out financial or private information like account numbers, PayPal login, or social security number.
  • If an offer sounds too good to be true, it is. Walk away!
