• Technical Writing

    Ealasaid Haas, a pale human with green hair. She's wearing a black suit, white shirt, blue-and-grey tie, and wireframe glasses. She looks professional as hell, yo.I’m a technical writer with 10 years of experience, based in Portland, OR. I’m currently looking for work, and open to both local jobs in the Portland area and remote/telecommuting work just about anywhere.

    I have written end user documentation, administrator guides, online help, hardware testing procedures, and more – see my portfolio for samples!

    Do you have docs that need writing? Get in touch!
