About our presenter

Among technical communication recruiters in the San Francisco Bay area, Andrew Davis may be the best-known. He began his career in a hospital pathology lab, but apparently participating in autopsies steered him into technical communication. He has traveled the world and hopes to swim from Alcatraz someday. How he will get to Alcatraz is another matter.
