Backstory

When I was a kid I was the first person in my hick town to have a Commodore 64, Atari or Walkman (and now you know how old I am).

I’m the first person on your block with the latest gadget or application. I’m also the person who can explain these gadgets and concepts to you simply.

[list_item icon="fa-bolt"]Got into software after college (journalism major!)[/list_item]

[list_item icon="fa-bolt"]Worked my way from tech support to writing and editing technical documentation and technical training to content strategy.[/list_item]

[list_item icon="fa-bolt"]Did some PR/Corporate Communications in Phoenix and developed one of the first company intranets way back in the 90s.[/list_item]

[list_item icon="fa-bolt"]Toiled in the fields of San Francisco software startups (survived the San Francisco boom and bust), and was a one-woman technical publications department in a startup that survived. [/list_item]

[list_item icon="fa-bolt"]I was one of the few people blogging into the void in 1999.[/list_item]

[list_item icon="fa-bolt"]Developed a love for usability (was credited in one of the earliest website critique books – Web Pages That Suck by Vincent Flanders).[/list_item]

[list_item icon="fa-bolt"]Taught myself HTML and web design on the side for fun in the early 1990s. Happily CMS clients came along making things much easier (taught myself WordPress). [/list_item]

[list_item icon="fa-bolt"]Learned about SEO and SEM. Decided I wasn’t black hat or statistical enough to really love SEO the way it wanted to be loved. But I loved the “landing page” side of things that appreciated the value of content and usability.[/list_item]

[list_item icon="fa-bolt"]Moved to New York City, got myself into the New York tech scene, and discovered Content Strategy. Did Content Strategy for a few years, but realized I missed the interaction and stimulation of training people (and writing materials for them!)[/list_item]

[list_item icon="fa-bolt"]Started working with Drupal companies. And here we are! [/list_item]
