I want to help your team create docs and product-focused content that are so good they preempt support requests and become a significant driver of growth.
I'm currently a technical product manager, but my superpower is collecting, synthesizing, and disseminating information that empowers developers and technical audiences. Explication is my flow state, and I love the challenge of unpacking complicated topics so real people can accomplish their goals with software.

With a background that spans journalism, web development, and teaching, I'm equally comfortable liaising with engineers and stakeholders across departments, building web sites with modern SSG tools (what some call the Jamstack), and working at the command line.

I'm looking to be hired, but if you're part of an open-source project with docs I can build and/or improve I'm very happy to talk.
