My professional life has largely been working with words in and around large software companies. Although I have worked as an individual contributor, more and more of my time has been as a leader and coach. I attribute my success as a Technical Communication professional to my reliance on small words and adherence to short sentences. In my efforts to serve the user, I leverage my writing aesthetic by creating elegant and efficient material.
I’ve worked in Technical Communication at Spotfire, owned by TIBCO Software, Inc., for the last seven years. Spotfire, established in 1996, was an early innovator in the data visualization space and remains an industry leader with the enterprise-ready Spotfire platform. As the Head of Technical Communication at Spotfire, I have a voice in setting strategy and defining tactics for the documentation aspect of Spotfire.
