I create comprehensive back-of-the-book indexes for general and scholarly trade books, textbooks, cookbooks and biographies.

My fields of expertise include aviation, bibliographies, cooking, engineering, history, library and information technology, mathematics, military and defense, music, and physics.

I have 30 years of experience in software development in the military aviation field, involving military standard documentation. I am a qualified Library Technician, and I also have experience as a technical writer, documenting Canadian aircraft operator processes.
