Technical Writer, Content Strategist, and knowledge manager in Washington, DC
I’m a technical writer and content strategist who spends way too much time thinking and writing about enterprise mobility and the cloud.
Currently, I work in the corporate growth group of a large government contractor where I work on white papers and other collateral about the cloud, managed services, and other next-generation technologies that can help federal agencies better serve us, their constituents.
I’ve written about enterprise mobility, BYOD, big data, and the cloud. I hope to write more articles in 2018. My articles have been published by IBM Mobile Business Insights, Samsung Business Insights, TechBeacon, CNET TechRepublic, and others.
Before my current position, I spent most of my career as a contract technical writer and freelancer. It was enjoyable for the most part. However, in the years running up to my pivot back to full-time employment, it felt like a race to the bottom. When I started as a contractor, you had relationships with recruiters and contract houses. In later years, I could barely understand recruiter voicemails. _Spray and pray_ emails from contract houses also grew into the rule, not the exception. I stayed too long at the party. It was time to change.
I also gained interests in collaboration and project management during my time as a technical writer. So much so, I wrote about those topics off and on over the years for industry websites. My experience extends to setting up and managing Atlassian Confluence spaces. I can also create and manage SharePoint sites for document collaboration and knowledge management.
