Writer/Project Manager, present
Over the last few years I've written and published two non-fiction, instructional books on poker. The first was Reading Poker Tells. The second was Verbal Poker Tells. These books have done very well, getting great reviews from both amateur and professional-level poker players.
I've played and studied poker seriously, on and off, for more than ten years. For three of those years I played professionally. I've always thought that there were better books to be written about poker behavior than what was out there. Eventually I decided I'd try to write them myself.
Technical Writer, 2012 - 2013
I was the only dedicated onsite technical writer. I researched and wrote the end-user guides and manuals for several of the company's proprietary hardware and software products. I also wrote promotional how-to guides on how to implement the company's solutions.
Instructional Designer, 2009 - 2012
Convergence Training is a company that specializes in creating multimedia workforce training products (many of them using 3D animation) for industrial and manufacturing companies. During my time at Convergence, I researched and wrote training scripts for some large industrial companies. For example, some jobs required me to go to a facility and study their factory line and then create a training project to educate workers on how those machines and stations worked. I also created generic, off-the-shelf training on a myriad of complex subject matters, such as overhead crane operation, industrial pipe maintenance, and electrical dangers.
