Dave Koelmeyer—Technical Communicator#

I'm a technical communicator with an expert eye for detail. I have a singular focus on creating beautiful written and visual content for your business, product, or software project.

My services include creating customer documentation, technical guides for software installation and administration, video screencasts, white papers, blog posts, web copy, and copy editing.

My impeccable written English ability is bolstered by a strong technical background informed by over ten years working in enterprise-scale environments, with lead responsibility for documentation.

I have expertise in:

  • A wide range of web documentation systems, including associated markup languages and editors (JSPWiki, MediaWiki, Atlassian Confluence, Markdown, Drupal, WordPress)
  • Using office productivity software (LibreOffice, Microsoft Word) at an advanced level to create long-form content according best practice formatting techniques
  • Using image editing and diagramming software to create original graphical content
  • Using video and audio editing software to create original video screencast training material
  • HTML/CSS manipulation for custom requirements
