I am a technical writer (web pages, Help files, instructional materials) and a technology trainer.
I co-wrote WordPress 2 Visual QuickStart Guide (2006), a 4-year daily column for the NZ Herald called Tech Universe (2010 to 2014), a couple more books, and hundreds of Tips, newsletters, columns and articles.
For more than 12 years I wrote weekly or twice weekly Tips for Mac users.
I have trained thousands of people, individually or in groups, to use computers (primarily Apple hardware), software products and the Internet.
Making things easy
People tell me I explain things really well.
I love to build up confidence and explain to others things I understand but they find hard.
I live at the beach near Levin, about an hour’s drive north of Wellington in New Zealand. My partner and I have two dogs, two cats and 5 quail, and a large garden that we’re filling with mainly native plants.
I enjoy riding my bike, taking photos, walking the dogs on the beach, watching and reading sci-fi and crime shows and books, and all the local wildlife.
