Statement of Interest

Hoping to promote documentation involvement in the OpenStack community.


Alex is a technical writer currently employed by SUSE to work on SUSE OpenStack Cloud documentation. Alex was the Project Technical Lead (PTL) for the OpenStack-manuals project for the Pike release and is currently serving as a member of the Technical Committee (TC) for the Train release.

Alex graduated from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Australia with a degree in Creative Industries (BCI) majoring in Creative Writing and took the deep dive into the technology industry shortly after graduation at Red Hat. Since then she has worked for Rackspace and within the wider Open Source community.

Alex currently is based on London and spends her time wondering how her career took such a happy accidental turn.
