Portfolio

Professional work

Since 1998, I have written and edited internal and customer-facing content for Amazon, Microsoft, Expedia, Netflix, Drugstore.com, Immersion Networks, and other tech companies. Technologies I have written about include e-commerce, blockchain, cloud computing, AI/ML, DevOps, immersive media, VR/AR, and codecs.

I’m facile with Web copy, eBooks, white papers, pitch decks, customer communications, brand messaging, and wordsmithing in a variety of contexts.

Here are a couple examples of my recent work.
