About Arnold

I spent a decade as a team lead writing hardware documentation for the telecommunications industry, and the last nine years as a documentation manager for several software companies. I have an undergraduate degree in computer science and a graduate degree in technical communication and information design from the Illinois Institute of Technology. After graduating, I taught graduate and undergraduate classes in technical communication.

Mindtouch listed me as one of the top 25 most influential technical communicators of 2013, which means I get a cool badge:
