I've been a technical communicator for many years. I've seen the profession grow and change, both keeping up with the times and creating new times. I'm just as comfortable working with start ups as I am for larger corporations.
I believe that if you're not moving forward, you are falling behind. I regularly attend webinars, conferences and group meetings to ensure that my skills are current and reflect the best practices of my profession.
I live in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley.
