My experience with technical writing and user guide/tutorial developer/trainer for a span of fifteen years focused on software/hardware documentation, use and progression. I have developed and presented programs and procedures established personally. This has resulted in supervisor recommendations for doubling employees’ performance by re-ordering a file system for accessing prints. I have worked in various facilities with highly technical specialized devices where I facilitated training with computer software/hardware and other computer related devices. I organize programs in a manner to accept editing when hardware of software progress directs changes. This allows those in contact a more comfortable and acceptable method to change vital processes as required. Also, I have aided fellow employees from cultures other that the United States, with discussions and practices to acclimatize for greater comfort and acceptance. My presentation experience to large and small groups is geared so listeners can more easily remember and recall. I practice collaborating with experts and consumers as a method to access the finest opportunity to provide quality methods to relay information.

I have produced and catalogued documentation for reference and display technical content training manuals dealing with Google and Android. I have personally written and orally presented for the purpose of learning/reinforcing skills acquired in training and for reference demonstrating a 75% greater speed and efficiency with daily computer operation and communication efforts.

I have facilitated training and discussions in laboratories, for presentations and actual functional operations, this refers to PC operation of various software after receiving basic understanding of PC hardware and maintenance resulting in a 50% speed and accuracy advantage .

I strive to develop well-organized techniques and processes for optimal efficiency as a personal trait after experiencing shortcomings in rapidly produced documents.

The above mentioned training catalogues are the basis for the presentations and are created with the foresight of editing for possible and eventual alterations required to advance as technology progresses.

I enjoy collaboration with others to insure quality programs from a collective effort to learn and expose newly created processes of wisdom discovered within group intellect.

I have experience as a mechanical, electrical board and CAD drafter/designer has augmented my spatial awareness while visualizing the creation of hardware.

I focus on accessing feedback from project teams as they evaluate their acumen before and after training as well as objective evaluation.

I can conversationally communicate in Spanish and Portuguese.
