A photo of me

Hi! I’m Ruben, and I’m a technical writer and solution architect based in Sydney; previously Singapore.

I live for travel, mornings at coffee shops, FreeBSD stacks, jazz, retrocomputing, and sharing bubble tea with Clara.

I write formal specifications, technical briefs, end-user guides, internal references, compliance documentation, tenders, wikis, and whitepapers. I also maintain metadata and schemas, document management tools, diagrams, and assist marketing teams with technical copy. I work in LaTeX, XML/RDF, Markdown, Textile, plain HTML, UML, UNIX manpages, LibreOffice, and maybe even Microsoft Word. Examples of my work are available upon request. is my public weblog of interests I’ve been writing since late 2004, with over 8,000 entries. Some of them are even good!

You can reach me on Mastodon, Twitter, Wikipedia, LinkedIn, and email.

What do you get when you cross prata with a hypervisor? A question with eleven words.
