“Hi, my name is Angus Stocking and I’m an infrastructure geek.”

I come by it honestly. For 17 years I worked as a land surveyor. I started as rodman and AutoCAD draftsman at a small shop in California (I would never have made it as a surveyor in the hand drafting era) and ended up as survey manager at a nine-office consulting firm in the Midwest. Along the way, I worked for CalTrans as a surveyor and right-of-way engineer, as a crew chief for a rowdy crew of gas line surveyors in the South, and as an instrument man in Idaho. I was also, for a couple of years, vice-president of sales for a software firm in Idaho—we sold AutoCAD and other design software to consulting engineers, big fertilizer plants, a plant that packaged Weight Watcher meals, another plant that processed most of McDonald’s french fries, and anyone else in the West that needed software and training to get tricky jobs done right. All in all, I’ve done survey work in over 20 states.

Actually, I guess I was born to be an infrastructure geek; my dad, Robert Dean Stocking, PE, spent his entire career working for the Army Corps of Engineers, including a stint as chief negotiator for Space Launch Complex No. 6 at Vandenberg Air Force Base in Lompoc, California. SLC 6 was ready to launch the space shuttle, before launches were restricted to the East Coast (for no good reason I ever heard).

I’m also a bit of a writing geek. I’ve been writing for publication for about 25 years, beginning with satire published in the San Francisco Chronicle. In all, I’ve published hundreds of articles in dozens of publications, and I’ve written tens of thousands of words for infrastructure firms in the form of web pages, catalog copy, case studies, white papers, newsletters… you name it, I’ve written it. I even wrote and produced a radio show for a few years.

So if you’re looking for a writer who knows infrastructure, I honestly think I’m one of the best choices out there, maybe the best. Give me a call, and let’s get started working together!
