Technical Content With Character ✌️

About Me

My name is Al (not to be confused with A.I. — I’m not a bot, promise), and I’m a geek about all things technology. I started my journey with a Computer Science degree, then spent several years as a software engineer before I realized I enjoyed teaching others even more. Now I’m a professional technical writer writing for tech businesses and cultivating happy users.

I provide guides, docs, and tutorials that will delight your users, not leave them asleep. Here’s what I can build for you:

I specialize in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Chatbots, Big Data, and Python programming, but I love writing about anything technology, IT, or security related. I also write about up and coming apps, websites, and startups.

What is technical content that converts worth to you? More leads, more sales, and happier customers are only a message away.
