Senior Technical Writer | email@example.com
My background is in IT. Back at high school we had one lonely computer that sat in an office. I remember walking past, spotting it when the door was left open, and I started dreaming about working with computers. I knew nothing about them – maybe that was why – it was the mystery of this new device. Whatever it was, I made it clear to my first employer that I wanted to work on a computer. Apart from backing up the wages clerk every so often when I got to use an old Burroughs computer that used a paper tape and looked like a knitting machine, it took almost 3 years to get my hands on a ‘real’ computer. I was employed as an operator and then a programmer on large IBM mainframes (which probably had less computing power than my current smartphone).
Many years, and many different jobs (and experiences) later, I have been working as a technical writer for WritersInc since 2006. It’s a job that I love because of the variety of the projects I get to work on – there’s always something new to learn and my wealth of experience enables me to pass on suggestions to our clients.
Now that both my teenage daughters are rowing I find a lot of my time is spent supporting them both at the rowing club and various rowing regattas. I love my community and have been a trustee at a couple of my daughters’ schools, and I’m on the board for our local community society. Spare time? Who has time to spare? There’s always something that needs to be done…
