Technical Writing

My writing is clear, accurate, organized, and appropriate to the audience and the task.  I apply these same principles to editing the work of others. 

I can write or edit:

  • Tutorials
  • Coursework
  • Tech notes
  • Brochures
  • General catalogs
  • Quality systems documentation
  • Test methods
  • Procedures
  • Policies
  • Manuals
  • etc.

In any project, I will maintain and distribute clear and usable documentation of actions taken, lessons learned, conclusions drawn, and decisions made.

Examples of my work include:

  • Shop Math Course (see syllabus)
  • Optician Apprentice Training (a six-month training course)
  • An inexpensive method to evaluate and optimize spot tool performance for the small optical shop (published in "Selected SPIE Papers on CD-ROM - Optical Fabrication, ed. Daniel Malacara)
  • VLOC catalogs (the General Catalog won an Excellence award in the Florida Technical Communication Competition)
  • VLOC MIL-I-45208A Quality System including policies, procedures, methods and forms
  • Polarization Tutorial
