I’m an information architect, recently relocated from Germany to Denmark. Passionate about DITA and technical content, I make it my mission to keep reminding writers that documentation has to be easy to find, easy to understand, easy to use. The safest way is to optimize your workflows and to thinkDITA: applying the reuse, flexibility and exchange mechanisms of the DITA standard.</shortdesc>
My expertise has been built on 15 years in Technical Communication, a BA in Management, an MSc in Project Management, the certification in Technical Documentation, and most of all, continuous curiosity and learning. All this sharpened my interest in structured documentation, DITA and information systems implementation.
Over the years, I have been a tech writer, information architect, content strategy consultant, project manager, trainer. I took part in various projects of content migration, implementation of content management systems, rebranding and localization, in multinational companies dealing with software, hardware, small and large appliance, heavy machinery, building materials, software, cinema, broadcast and e-media technologies.
Currently I am working for Vestas Wind Systems A/S in Aarhus, Denmark (but the views on this blog are my own). You might meet me attending or speaking at events, like DITA Europe, DITA Content Strategies North America, Adobe DITA World, Information Energy, tcworld, EUROIA, XML Prague.
In 2016 I have started a monthly, local meetup in Germany: DITA-Anwender Bodensee and am very grateful for the continuous interest and contribution of “my small German DITA tribe”.
When my friends don’t have to put up with my stories about DITA, tools and writing, we get to talk about languages, cultures, families, books, movies, travelling and photography.
I’ll be sharing my thoughts on DITA, Technical Communication and Information Architecture on this blog, and I’m looking forward to hearing yours.
