My name is Mark and I have operated DB Writing since 2015. I am a registered professional engineer with a passion for structural design and writing.

DB Writing provides me with an avenue to assist individuals and organizations with their documentation needs — technical reports, proposals, organization systems, and training resource development.

Please email me at dmbudd [at] gmail [dot] com if you want to collaborate, if you have contract work, or if you need assistance with research and design.
