"I use writing skills every day and all day," he said. "The manner in which you present information is as important, if not more important, than the substance of the information you seek to convey."


Gabe identified his technical writing course at Western as the most important course he took as an undergraduate student. He said failing to demonstrate sound writing skills can cause people to discount what one is saying, and even damage a person's credibility. For more information about Gabe Galanda, visit: and
