The best documentation involves much more than putting words on a page. It begins with an analytical approach to people, processes, and products, and results in clear, concise, and easy-to-understand copy. Whether I'm writing for a technical or non-technical audience, I’m passionate about infusing all of these attributes into actionable documentation that helps users of all experience levels do amazing things.
