I like to write.  In particular, I like to write things that help people learn.  The links below are a sampling of my work.  Written communication is a strong point of mine as demonstrated by being published on Adobe’s main website, in addition to being a paid contributor to its Edge Newsletter.

I’ll have to track down all the stuff I’ve written as there’s a lot out there on the ‘net. When I do track it down, it’ll show up here.
