Summary

I am an all rounder with a passion for information and communication technology. In changing careers from electronics to ICT ten years ago I landed a role with a startup company developing a disruptive web technology. Startups demand versatility, so I was able to participate in every part of the business. That was ideal because I thrive on diversity and I'm a compulsive entrepreneur. My core skill is technical communication. For me that is the craft of finding the most effective and efficient way to make complex things understandable. This gives me plenty of scope to create, discover and apply innovative processes, tools and technologies. My skill set is useful in areas such as software development, product design, user assistance, training, elearning, business process design, quality assurance, procurement, sales and marketing. My goal is simply to be wherever I can get enough freedom to push boundaries and do something exceptional.
