Writing & Editing

I have more than three decades of experience of writing original content. My editing credits include Chris Smith''s “How to Design a Microcomputer” and the Translation Commons guide to digitizing indigenous languages “Zero to Digital”.

Graphic Design

My graphic design credits include typesetting the Ultima Dragons' 25th anniversary booklet, over a dozen keyboard legend designs including the Mega 65 and Commander X16 and all the branding for the Chloe 280SE open hardware retro computer.

Voice Talent

I have several years of experience narrating training videos and doing live video demos. And I make short videos for an open source software project. But I’m always happy to try new things.
