Technical Writing

As technical writer for NASA's Ares First Stage Team, among other, my duties included writing conference papers, background checking, and working as needed with various other Ares projects and Ares First Stage publication development efforts. I also worked with Ares and Ares First Stage specific video, media and presentation outreach projects. These were a team effort, and I variously worked alongside authors, presentors, illustrators, videographers and First Stage element team members in gathering background research and information, writing, editing, and development of the various projects. As First Stage Subject Matter Expert for the Ares Outreach group, I was responsible for helping to develop and insure the accuracy of a range of Ares First Stage specific NASA information and resources.
