nDash Writer Profile for Jack M. Germain


Freelance writer and editor specializing in technology and education

About Me

I have a passion for technology and have an extensive background in writing high-quality blogs based on research and interviews. I specialize in writing about business enterprise issues, education, technology, and product presentations. I write extensively about B2B technology including the cloud, cybersecurity, open source, IoT, and big data.

My journalism expertise includes a wealth of experience creating Website and print content. I repair thoughtless marketing material, turning it into stellar sales tools. Some call this editing. 

But my skills go far beyond typical corrective tasks for poor grammar and weak sentence structure. As an accomplished wordsmith, I have authored for print and electronic publications a vast assortment of news stories, enterprise content, and interviews with top-level executives.
