The guru of



Creative and Technical Writer, Editor, Virtual Assistant and Web Queen Diva (i.e. Web administrator)

I have been a technical and creative writer for more than 20 years, as well as an editor, IT professional (primarily Tier 1 and Enterprise Security), web administrator, transcriptionist, virtual assistant, and a general web presence guru. I'm is always looking for interesting new projects and opportunities to grow my skill set.

Ethan Embry once remarked that I am both funny and smart. Ileanna Douglas once said, of an interview question I created for her, "Ooh, nice one." I've made Kelly Carlin "Laugh Out Loud", which was the highlight of my day. And none of those are even made up - Jon Lovitz style - they're just social media bonuses. People often refer to me as clever, and most of the time they aren't even being facetious.

I used to run an IT security team for John Deere (yes, that one) - including a small remote team in Bucharest, Romania. That piece of background means I have no further need of vague fantasies about being an international spy. But it also means that I know how to work in a team, and lead a team, in equal parts.

I was one of 23 featured writers in the book (yes, actual pulp and glue) The Internet is Always Right: The Intrepid Media 2009 Collection.

Specialties: Improving efficiency of web processes and documentation of online tools, learning new tasks/skills/software at a rapid speed, adjusting to a highly dynamic work environment, team and project management, creative web design, creative and technical writing. Other specialties include: making people laugh and think deep Jack-Handyesque thoughts at the same time, producing film/TV/music/book references that boggle people's minds, preaching to the choir - even when it's not my choir - and telling men how to write dating profiles that garner them reputations as witty wordsmiths with woman-like wisdom.
