Bill has 35+ years experience as an Electrical Engineer, Technical Writer, and Documentation Manager. He worked in technical areas including avionics, systems integration, mobile software, SaaS.

Several years ago he left the corporate world to care for sick parents. He supported himself building websites, writing technical “how-to” books, and leading online courses. Now, with family issues behind him, he has the time to take on some freelance clients.

His atypical career path taught him to work well with a wide range of clients and audiences. Clients like Honeywell and Microsoft, McGraw-Hill and other book publishers, even pre-IPO startups. Audiences from computer beginners, to B2B buyers, to engineers building aircraft systems.

He's skilled at learning complex technologies like VPNs and cryptocurrencies. And he excels at turning that raw data into understandable content for a target audience.

Bill is looking to contribute to projects that need these skills. He's particularly interested in subjects that empower individuals such as online privacy.
