C17 Hale deplanes-sI am an experienced writer and editor specializing in making the complex clear, something vital for scientific and technical fields. With a keen interest in science and technology, I live to dig into complicated topics and make them as understandable as possible.

I have experience writing news releases, features, blog posts, technical summaries, website content, and newsletters. I’ve written for NASA, Texas A&M University, and magazines like Earth, Science Editor, and Science Writers. My work covers topics like aviation, glaciology, physics, plant biology, remote sensing, and science communication.

My editing experience includes website copy, software manuals and help pages, books, and journal articles, and I am familiar with AP and Chicago style manuals.

I am comfortable with a wide range of software platforms. I am familiar with HTML and CSS, WordPress and Joomla, Photoshop, and the typesetting language LaTeX, and have experience using Windows, Unix and Linux, and Mac OS.
