I am friendly and I love intelligent discussion and interesting questions about:

  • technical writing & editing

  • teaching engineers & scientists to write more readable, concise, delightful materials

  • wwoofing (organic/sustainable farming, volunteering)

  • travelling

If I have not already written a blog post about your question, somewhere, I'm happy to write a new one or just chat! Drop me a line.

I have also written textbooks about technical writing, other nonfiction books, and fiction, many of which are available on Amazon under my name.
