My name is Miranda, and I am an Information Developer (aka technical writer). I am the junior writer on my team, new to the company, and new to the industry. It’s safe to say, I’m the greenhorn. However, I have the honor to work beside some very experienced and very knowledgeable senior writers, so it’s only a matter of time before their good habits rub off on me.
With in excess of ten years front line authoring experience and many more producing training documentation, I have a passion for language, its use and its odities. I was an Account Manager for a computer bureau providing a service to the advertising industry prior to taking the plunge into technical authoring. A large part of this was the production of technical training material for the ad-hoc customer training and classroom led courses held in the company’s training suite.
