About me

Welcome to my blog!

I’m a Senior Programmer Writer, which is a Technical Writer who writes about various aspects of programming for software developers–and who has been doing it for a while.

My recent writing adventures include writing about the Angular framework for Google and the AWS IoT Core service, which is the service that Internet of Things (IoT) devices use to connect to Amazon Web Service (AWS) cloud services and teaching Technical Communication at Mercer University.

My recent research interests have focused on applying human-centered design principles to benefit the patients and staff of small clinics in lower-middle-income countries and how the same principles can be used to measure and improve technical communication methods and practices. In 2015, I was awarded a PhD in Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) from the University of Washington, Seattle with a concentration in Global Technology and Communication Management. My dissertation, The Effect of Visual Design and Information Content on Readers’ Assessments of API Reference Topics, studied the effect of variations in design and information content on the performance and perception of API reference topics.

My professional career started in the software industry where I worked as a software engineer and development-team manager. After developing a variety of software products on different platforms and at different companies, I moved to technical writing to find new challenges and technical writing continues to deliver them.

Technical writing continues to provide the perfect opportunity to apply my passion for technology, research, and communication.
