"Hi there, I'm David, nice to virtually meet you! My background is in Human Factors Engineering, Anthropology, and Science, Technology, and Society - a.k.a. I enjoy a variety of subject matters and thinking critically about the intersection of people, culture, science, and tech. I also have over 10+ years of experience solving a variety IT and technical issues on Macs and PCs.

As an Anthropology major in undergrad, I spent years learning to better understand various peoples, cultures, thoughts, and in the context of our increasingly complex and tech-dense society, make meaning from enmeshed or ambiguous concepts. If you couldn't tell by the last sentence, I also learned how to write like an anthropologist... and I decided it's not for me. If you're struggling with anthropological concepts I can help you translate complexity into simplicity.

Whether it's technical or non-technical writing, long-drawn out or concisely put, I've written and read it all in the last few years. What started as proofreading papers eventually led to enjoyment of mapping out logical arguments, defending viewpoints and changing minds. I'm happy to help with any writing issues you may have, especially if your assignment is non-conventional.

I've spent a great deal of time in recent years and in college writing, reading, and solving challenging tech-related problems (all my friends come to me with broken computers and leave smiling). My diverse background has sharpened my analytical writing and reasoning, and my experiences conducting and presenting research at the graduate and undergraduate level have afforded my opportunities to hone my craft." less...
