Daniel D. Beck


Hi, I’m Daniel D. Beck. 👋 I help people make and use software by writing documentation and code. In other words, I know lots of ways to use a semicolon. As a shorthand, you can call me a technical writer.

My past and current consulting clients include Arm, GitHub, Google, Heroic Labs, Hoopy, Mozilla, Pronovix, and WebFaction. From 2021 to 2022, I was employed at Mozilla, leading the MDN Web Docs content team, creating the essential reference for web developers.

Aside from writing and computers, I like baking bread, robotic space exploration, and hearing about how people do their jobs.

I’m an American, but I live in Amsterdam. I’ve lived lots of other places though, including California, Washington, Maryland, Florida, Delaware, the United Kingdom, and my adoptive hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I studied technical communications and computer science at the University of Central Florida.
