Hi, I'm a technical content & UX writer that loves clear & concise content.

A little bit about me.

I've made my home base, for now, in the Seattle, WA area. My journey into tech started with a degree in Computer System Administration with a minor in programming. I realized there was a need for documentation, for example, step-by-step procedures for troubleshooting and walk-throughs. As my technical writing career took off I made it a point to keep up with the advancing technology and learn programming languages, such as PHP, Python, HTML5/CSS3, and JavaScript.

That curiosity and the desire to return to design work opened a door that could never be shut. When I learned how to build my first website, I realized I found something that gave me the freedom & versatility I was looking for in my work. Now I've added front-end development to services, where I can use my creative skills and eye for detail to write clean, elegant code.

Front-end Web Developer

You can trust me to take a design comp and quickly convert it into a webpage that is pixel-perfect match. My focus is writing clean, well-formatted, semantic HTML5 by hand to make sure that the content is easy to read, easy to collaborate, trouble-shoot and accessible.
