This is a list of all the skills and tools I have developed in my career. It is not completely exhaustive, but I’ve taken pains to mention most of the tools, software, languages, and more I’ve previously worked with.

General Skills

  • Documentation: Strong documentation skill. I’m able to create documentation for varying audiences, whether terse and technical READMEs for developers or more comprehensive and in-depth manuals for content editors. I’ve led or been heavily involved with documentation efforts at 3+ employers. I truly enjoy creating and updating documentation.
  • Presentations & Onboarding: I’m able to lead and guide others. At JK Design — I prepared, rehearsed, and performed a training session on using a new website for 10+ users all in a room. For freelance projects — I’ve given presentations on accessibility to other developers. At Kanopi — I am tasked with guiding new developers through the intense multi-step processes for onboarding, access, and workflows for my primary project.
