ABOUT ME_edited.jpg

Hola! I'm Jim Mahannah.

For years, I was employed by technology companies to market and sell their fascinating products and services, including:

 

  • An electrical utility where I helped design substations and purchase expensive transmission substation equipment

  • A multi-national electrical equipment manufacturer supporting power utilities to generate and distribute electricity

  • Process equipment specialists treating municipal and industrial wastewater and transforming waste into energy and vital nutrients for beneficial reuse

  • An engineering consultant providing HVAC design services to industrial clients. 

 

I also spent thirteen years in construction as an estimator, project manager, and business owner of a fabrication facility supplying structural wood products to residential and commercial projects.

​As an engineer, I get tech. My engineering background is most useful in helping me understand the processes and thinking that go into developing and deploying innovative technologies. Certainly, technology writing remains a challenging and meaningful endeavor that draws on all my qualities, experience, and interests.

My Process

I strive to make my technology writing process for you as simple and fool-proof as possible. I expect you'll find it easy to work with me. I trust you'll be the same.

Starting with a conversation
 
Let's start with a conversation

 

What is the project you have in mind?

What are your objectives?

Who is your target audience?

What is your timeline to complete?

What is your budget?

​From our conversation, I will issue you a

firm price quote outlining the work scope, responsibilities, suggested schedule to complete, payment terms, price, and

other details.

Payment

 

​The project kicks off upon payment of the deposit invoice (the need for a deposit may be waived). Payment is a simple online process by electronic funds transfer or credit card.

A note about budgets...

 

​Plan to discuss your budget early on. Why? Knowing your budget up front enables me to recommend the best way to reach your objectives. Plus it saves your time and mine if financial expectations simply don't align.

I'll work hard to ensure you're satisfied with the results. I may request a testimonial from you I hope you'll happily oblige.
