Freelance Technical Writer
Two words immediately come to mind when recalling Mike's work - thorough and professional. I always looked forward to working with Mike on projects because I knew there would be no "drama" - he always stayed focused on the work and stayed with it until it's done. His dedication never wavered.

I highly recommend Mike as an advisor-editor from the developmental stage at the inception of a project to the final proofreading at the end. As a veteran writer-editor, myself, who respects and values Mike’s contributions, I can only imagine what a significant level of worth he can offer to emerging or mid-career writers, who are still securing their own “voice” and refining structure and thematic content in their work.

Mike was an excellent technical writer with high ethics and a sense of doing the right thing in the face of adversity. He is mild mannered but meticulous in seeing that the job is done right. I highly recommend Mike as a technical specialist and as an outstanding human being who anyone would be be proud to have on staff.
I highly recommend Mike Gemmell as a candidate for editing and technical writing. Mike was employed by Flow Data as a Technical Writer from 2013 to 2015. Flow Data specializes in upstream oil and gas automation and produces several software and hardware products as an OEM and systems integrator. Because of the nature of competition in this industry, the pace of development is very brisk. This places direct pressure on maintaining technical documentation for new products and features.
Mike performed well in this environment, and produced numerous user guides, quick start guides, and comprehensive manuals in a timely and very professional manner. His attention to detail coupled with his ability to communicate with development staff allowed him to consistently produce documents that present complex material in clear and concise language. This was especially crucial for several new products and applications of Flow Data technology in new markets or with new customers and partners. In addition to new material, Mike was also relied upon to edit existing material to streamline it and make it more usable by engineers and field technicians. I relied on his ability to work independently with minimal supervision - a trait that I very much appreciated - to produce these documents.
In addition to the technical writing and editing, Mike was also a key member of an in-house team that examined and specified the requirements for a manufacturing / parts inventory / customer support database. He worked closely with various personnel to elicit their requirements by understanding their roles and duties (Manufacturing Manager, QA/QC control, DBA, General Manager, etc.).
Mike would be a valuable asset to any technical writing or editing effort. If you have any questions, please contact me.
