Technical writing

I’ve been fortunate enough to call myself a full-time technical writer (also known as a documentation specialist) for three fantastic SaaS companies.


A brief collection and description of various freelance documentation projects I’ve had the opportunity to work with.


In my spare time, I enjoy collaborating with different open source projects. In these projects I often contribute to technical documentation, content creation, and copy editing.

Systematic review

During my time at McGill, I helped with the first stages of a large systematic review. The project investigated the relationship between habitual intake of a population’s self-selected diet as recorded in nationally representatitve nutrition surveys, the proportion of animal- and plant-based foods, and any resulting environmental impacts.

The importance of information architecture

Information architecture refers to the structural design of information in a given environment. Or, as I like to think of it, a representation of the “desire path” for a subset of knowledge. It’s a practice that can easily be used in the creation and maintenance of help centers.

Building an Antora site I

I had previously provided some documentation for a local server build project. For this project, we used Antora to host the scripts and versioned docs.

Business writing

Here is an example of a short report and executive summary I created during my time at the University of Calgary. The excerpt includes a brief description of the intended audience and purpose. Part of the assignment was to create an imaginary audience and purpose that would necessitate writing a ten page report. For my focus, I decided to use an environmental narrative, with emphasis on research, and a sales tone.

Three samples of rewriting content

Animal physiology essays

While at the University of British Columbia, my particular area of research was in the Department of Science, where I specialized in animal physiology. I authored a collection of essays concentrated on race horses, who due to their nature as high performing animal atheletes, have a host of physiological adaptations that make them nonpareil from a biological perspective.

Copy editing

Copy editing is a favourite pastime of mine. Monitoring for inconsistencies, repetition, style incongruities, and readability is both deeply relaxing and a fun puzzle to solve.

Writing prompts II

These prompt-based pieces were an exercise in tone, style, and audience, constrained to a meager word count of 150.
