I believe what distinguishes a good Web developer from a great Web developer is a person’s ability to communicate. Many times I’ve heard clients talk about how hard it is to work with “techy” people. Being technically competent or oriented doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to write and speak effectively too. Even though I am searching for Web development work, I still want to share writing samples from past jobs. I hope these help demonstrate my ability to communicate clearly and effectively. (I haven’t done any tagging or metadata in these PDF files.)
