Lacey A.R. Taplin, Geek Prime

I embraced geekdom at an early age with a love of writing utensils, drama club, literature, and most things categorized as science fiction or fantasy. After years of secretly (and not so secretly) correcting other people's grammar as well as a fortuitous temporary-to-hire position with an engineering firm, I decided to pursue the life of a technical communicator.   

My experience, including 10 years in the civil and environmental engineering fields, includes document design, style guides, formatting, writing, proofreading, comprehensive editing, and website design and maintenance. Want to see some examples of my technical communication skills at work?

Using my design and editing expertise, I help you produce clear, concise, and consistent content.
