About Sarah R. Rodlund

As a technical writer, project and people manager, and operations specialist with a passion for creative writing and the arts, I bring a unique set of skills to any team. With extensive experience in managing complex projects from ideation to execution, I have developed a keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of the importance of communication in successful operations.

In my work as a technical writer, I have honed my ability to translate complex technical concepts into clear, concise language that is accessible to a wide swath of audiences. I am equally adept at crafting compelling narratives that engage and inspire readers, drawing on my experience as a creative writer and my deep appreciation for the power of storytelling.

My passion for both technology and art has led me to explore innovative ways to bring these different worlds together. I am constantly seeking out new opportunities to collaborate with artists, writers, and other creatives to explore the intersection of technology and the arts and to find new ways to use technology to bring creative visions to life.

If you’re looking for a dynamic and versatile leader and team member who can bring a fresh perspective to your technical, operational, or creative projects, I would be thrilled to connect with you.
