What I Do

Hello, I’m Marya. I manage people, experiment with technology, write helpful interface text, bother programmers with constructive suggestions, and occasionally quote Tennyson. Oh, and I write straight-up tech docs for enterprise applications. Most recently, I managed the documentation group at Jive Software. If you want to see how much three writers can achieve with cleverness, persistence, and extensive content reuse, check out docs.jivesoftware.com.

I co-founded the PDX DITA XML User’s Group. If you’d like to know more about that, or come to a meetup, check out the PDX DITA blog. You’ll also find some of my blog posts there.

You can find me on LinkedIn or Twitter.
