Professional/Personal Overview
  I'm a technical writer and editor who understands the technical part. I can polish your prose so that ordinary people can understand it. My background includes an educational foundation in physics and work experience in semiconductors, software engineering, and electrical design. I lived and worked in Germany for three years coordinating an international team, and I can sensitively craft messages for a multicultural audience.
