Joseph Mapue wears his writer's hat wherever he goes. Whether working as editor for various publishing houses, or as technical communicator for IT companies, Joseph's pen and keyboard are his weapons of choice.

As an independent consultant, Joseph enjoys sharing insights on technical, business, and creative communications. With a track record of more than 10 years as content creator and strategist, he feeds his passion by crafting world class business plans, functional specifications, whitepapers, website copies, academic papers, advertising & creative copies, press releases, speeches and other communication materials. A published author and a guest resource and contributor to niche blogs and portals, Joseph also has bankable experience in technical documentation and business development.

Joseph somehow obtained a bachelors degree in Physics while he minored in Computers and the Humanities. He also took graduate courses in Literature because he thought then that doing so would enrich his communication skills. It did. But it also messed up his brain: should he now look at a perfect apple as a scientific construct or see it as a work of art?  He eventually reached equilibrium by accepting that all good stuff--such as effective communication copies--can only be crafted using the precise tools of science and the highest standards of art.  

Joseph writes for fun and for pay and will likely continue doing so until the mountain winds claim his ashes.
