With more than 20 years of leadership experience, I’ve provided both corporate and private clients with project stewardship and information product development excellence, from small brochures and lengthy manuals to large Web sites and interactive multimedia projects.

Working with subject matter experts and other communications professionals, my content development expertise, technical knowledge and publishing services know-how have helped produce user- and field-tested documents, online help files, and Web sites for sales support, marketing, and e-business organizations.

Here you will find a cross-section of my skills and professional business accomplishments. Although many seem similar, each has its own intended audience. Note that my role in each project was different and adjusted to the business situation.


A position as a project management professional requiring proven strengths in communications, technical writing, new media innovation, and information development processes to efficiently execute projects that effectively accomplish their intended business objectives.
