Bringing tech copy to life

During college I spent a good chunk of time finding exciting ways to describe hard drives. Since then, I’ve had a soft spot in my heart for tech. I did more than just write about hard drives during that gig, but at the time external hard drives were that company’s bread and butter. Finding exciting ways to differentiate them — and keep them entertaining — was a challenge.

I received my first national exposure during that stint — I wrote the copy for a double page spread for a new computer that ran in several national publications. I also learned quite a bit, not the least of which was that catalog and technology copy can be fun…and that if done right, “fun” can translate into big sales.

I went on to found, a nightlife destination. A couple years later, I then co-founded, a business to business site that enabled vending companies to liquidate excess inventory. (As far as I know, it’s defunct now — but I cashed out before that happened.) Around that time, I co-founded, which currently processes half a billion dollars worth of invoices each year.

I’ve spent a great amount of time in consumer packaged goods and promotions, but I know what MTBF stands for. I also know how to set up and administer a web server, be it Windows/IIS or Linux/Apache based (Ubuntu, preferably). Couple my technology experience with my writing background and you’ve got a geek translator. Literally.

If you need a seasoned technology writer, drop me a line — I’d love to discuss your project!
