I'm Michael Koch—a consummate content professional, voracious reader, movie buff, and news junkie. In my twenty years in publishing, I've worn many hats and produced a multitude of educational, informational, marketing, and technical content for diverse audiences.
As a content strategist, I look at the big picture and then structure a plot across a defined space designed to connect users with relevant content. As an editor and writer, I like to revel in the details, but can be flexible and know how to balance business goals with user needs. As a project manager, I'm pragmatic, budget-minded, efficiency-oriented, and empathetic to stakeholders’ concerns and goals.
I've a penchant for concise and lucid writing; an uncanny ability to juggle multiple projects on tight timelines; an aptitude for making complex information and procedures clear and intuitive; and strong content and user-centered design instincts. Check out my résumé for more details about my skills and experience.
I have tremendous respect for Michael's work ethic and feel that we have been lucky to work so closely with him to produce e-learning materials that have helped thousands of developers use Adobe software.

Michael has proved invaluable as an editor whose skill and ability to identify problems and their solutions have been a significant aspect of my ability to do my job and retain my sanity.
Eric Newman, managing editor, Fordham University Press
On the organizational side, Michael clearly thinks ahead, anticipating problems and making sure he has a backup plan—a vital skill when dealing with authors who don't always adhere to deadlines!
David Powers, author and educator
Michael managed all of my projects with an incredible amount of efficiency and precision, and I always knew that when I sent something off to him it was in good hands. You will not meet anyone more organized.
