Technical Copywriter and Blogger

Philippines - Tests: 15 - Portfolio: 13

Content crafted to convince. Looking for a writer who can turn technical jargon into compelling content? Since 2008, I have been providing clients from tech and IT fields with content crafted to convince. My work has found its way to white papers, blogs, web sales pages, case studies, ebooks, brochures, PowerPoint presentations, flyers, sales letters, articles, and user manuals. Your product or service may be the best out there. But unless you're able to educate potential customers about it and ultimately convince them that it's something they really need, you'll never be able to hit your sales targets. That's why you need me on your team. I specialize in topics related to cloud computing, information security, and Big Data but can adapt to any IT subject. Some of the areas I've covered include: Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), Hadoop, hyperconvergence, ETL, SaaS, IaaS, BYOD, server and desktop virtualization, encryption, managed file transfer, business continuity and disaster recovery, managed services, e-discovery, business intelligence, and storage and backup. I have also blogged about laws and regulations affecting IT systems, like: SOX, GLBA, HIPAA and HITECH, PCI DSS, EU Data Protection Directive, Solvency II, transborder data flow regulations, and US state and territorial data breach notification laws.
