Another beginning's end

"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." Seneca

After 5+ years in content management consulting at Flatirons Solutions, I've decided to move on to new opportunities.

I've had a great experience with colleagues and clients and had some very cool travel opportunities! In fact, I've achieved a few of my life goals and grown professionally and personally as a result. It has been a good run.

Some of my most favorite/memorable projects include:

  • Boeing Delta LPD
  • John Wiley and Sons HECMS - Oxford, India, NYC
  • McGraw-Hill Create
  • Jeppesen
  • Fidelity Investments
  • Office of the Comptroller of the Currency
  • Cerner
  • McData
  • Informa
  • McGraw-Hill Digital Asset Library
  • Harvard Business School Press

I've also had the privilege of speaking at several conferences, including:

  • XML 2006
  • DITA 2007 West
  • OASIS Symposium 2007
  • XML 2009

In fact, many of my travels can be attributed to my work at Flatirons.

I've also taken a significant role in standards as Flatirons' Standards Coordinator. I helped to create:

  • DITA 1.1
  • DocBook v5.0
  • DITA Learning Content specialization
  • DITA for the Web
  • DocBook Publishers schema
  • DocBook eLearning schema

I hope to continue my involvement in DocBook and standards at my new company, including a new (for me) standard: ONVIF

I'm going to be an API Architect for Pelco ( Pelco makes high-end security cameras and systems, so I'm sure I'll be monitoring your activities soon. ;-)

To all of my former colleagues both at Sun/Oracle and Flatirons, as well as my former clients and the folks on the various standards committees: I have been honored to work along side you and get to know you. Please stay tuned here or on FaceBook to monitor my activities! Let's stay in touch!
