Mark O'Black profile picture

Hi, I’m Mark! Currently, I work remotely as a technical writer for a cybersecurity software company based in Arlington, VA. I recently obtained a Master's of Fine Arts (MFA) degree in media arts and technology at Duquesne University.

In my free time, I enjoy running, reading, writing, and learning about graphic, web, and user experience (UX) design. Careerwise, I want to pursue opportunities where I can blend my UX and technical writing skills to ensure customers enjoy a delightful and frictionless experience while using a company’s product or service.
