Technical Writing.

I am an AWS Community Hero and a Technical Writer with focus on introducing Cloud Computing and Amazon Web Services to people with non-traditional technical backgrounds. I wrote “AWS for Non-Engineers,” published by Manning Publications.

I have 5 years of experience working in corporate IT, finishing out as a Systems Administrator at a tech startup in New York City. I left the corporate world to work as a Freelance Technical Writer in the summer of 2019.

I teach “Introduction to AWS for Non-Engineers” course series at LinkedIn Learning, and introductory coding courses at I wrote “AWS for Non-Engineers” with Manning Publications in 2022.

Since deciding to work as a Technical Writer, I have been fortunate to be blessed with clients who have been nothing but supportive of my journey.
