Communication(s)* | Writing & Editing

With a bachelor’s in Computer Science and Journalism, a master’s in Writing, and over twenty years (at last count) of working as a writer and editor, as a teacher and communicator; as a trainer, technical writer and information architect; and as a technologist and project manager — the career path may look a little ‘schizophrenic.’

But there are some undercurrents.

Communication is important to me; user-awareness is important to me (or audience-awareness, or reader-awareness) — whether you’re talking about the Web, or comm-and-media, or even—and especially—plain old writing and editing.

In a nutshell, you could say that collecting and crafting and presenting information in ways that make it compelling and powerful and useful — that’s important to me.

* And by ‘communication’ I mean: internal and external, mass and miniscule, in old and new media, and intended or not.
