Earl Peters

VP User Experience
St. Joseph, MI
Effective technical communications is often more about solving problems that a client didn’t even realize existed than it is about writing about a specific product. With more than 20 years of experience in the industry, Earl has worked with products ranging from small kitchen appliances to industrial manufacturing equipment. As the VP of User Experience at JohnsonRauhoff, he and his team have worked with a number of Fortune 100 companies to develop technical communication strategies that take them from traditional printed solutions to next-generation communication paths.
With a double Bachelors degree in Economics and German studies from Kalamazoo College, followed by graduate studies in Germany, Earl’s love of learning and passion for foreign languages has also been a great asset in his role as a technical communicator. This, combined with several years in the retail electronics industry, has given him a strong appreciation for good technical communication. Earl currently splits his time between SW Michigan and southern California.
