was born in Atlanta, grew up in New York, and studied History and Secondary
Education at Hofstra University graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree.
After serving in the U.S. Navy, I moved to California and worked at
the San Francisco Examiner as a Sports Promotion Supervisor and then
at Charles Schwab & Co as a Database Analyst and Systems Engineer
during the 1980s.
From 1991-1997, I managed personal portfolios and prepared investment
and financial strategies for associates. I also researched and developed
test scripts for brokerage web site analysis. During this period, I
attended classes at Oxford University and Edinburgh University and traveled
throughout Europe, China, Japan, and Australia. Since 1997, I have been
freelancing and contracting as a Technical Writer and as a Web Site
Designer & Producer working with both small businesses and corporate
entities at technical, medical, insurance, education, and financial
firms. If you are interested in contacting me, I would be happy to give
you more comprehensive information about any of the work on this site.

worked on database and programming applications and data storage preparation
and planning. But I always preferred writing, and describing and teaching
people how complex things worked more than I enjoyed developing programs
and applications. So I write about the way things work and events happen
(technical writing.) It can be about finance if it is for a bank or
brokerage, telephones and computers if it is for a telecommunications
company, medical procedures for a medical center, writing to receive
grants if for an education system, and on philosophical and literary
subjects for myself. This can be in various media or technical formats.
So I have proficiency in preparing technical manuals and in developing
and writing for web sites. This requires expertise in software and planning
and accuracy in facts and information. As every company uses different
technology and guidelines, I have the ability to learn, work with, and
explain complex subjects quickly.
