Summary of Experience
Jonathan has experience writing blog posts, technical documentation, and scientific texts. He is currently pursuing a certificate in technical communications and holds degrees in Chemical Engineering, as well as a number of patents. A transplant into the software industry, Jonathan originally spent time working in research and consulting. There, he authored procedural documents, articles for scientific journals, patent applications, and various invention records.

After learning his various software skills almost exclusively from reading poor documentation, Jonathan understands the struggle of those unable to converse efficiently with professionals. His comfort with distilling information from subject matter experts provided an avenue with which to grow as a technical communicator. And as a result, he now strives to improve accessibility and readability of written documentation everywhere.
Jonathan writes content that varies in complexity and tone, but specializes in:

*Technical communication
*Blog posts
*Instructional content
*Reference documentation

He enjoys learning new things, teaching, and applying technical expertise to extract information and present it simply.
In his spare time, Jonathan enjoys reading up on new topics in computer science, sustainable energy, and game design. On the rare occasions when Jonathan isn't online, he enjoys crafting time with his significant other and playing board games that focus not only on strategy, but also on reading the opponent. In all games, Jonathan is fond of discussing new content, imparting knowledge to fresh players, and crunching numbers to better understand game mechanics.
Cornell University Chemical Engineering, Masters of Engineering

Studied chemical engineering with a focus on sustainability and renewable energy.

University of Texas at Austin Chemical Engineering, Bachelor of Science

Studied chemical engineering with a focus on polymers and the environment. Also received an interdisciplinary certificate in environment through the bridging disciplines program.

Projects by Industry

Jonathan stepped into the software industry through self-taught programming courses and open source work. In addition to documentation and tutorials for his own coding projects, his writing includes contributions to open source reference documentation and beginners learning guides.


Jonathan is an avid gamer that regularly looks to spark conversations with game designers and fellow players. He has written wiki articles, blog posts, introductory articles for new titles, and summaries for notable updates. These range from discussions of successful mindsets in high end content to preemptive rules clarifications for new players of a board game.


Jonathan has 5 years of experience writing and revising scientific journal articles, invention records, procedural documents, and patent applications. By reducing topic complexity without sparing details, he improves the effectiveness of communication.
