Tell me more about Avery Enterprises.
Avery Enterprises is a writing firm begun in 2001 to serve 4 distinct groups:
1) Schools that want the best in quiz bowl for their students.
2) Organizations that need assessment of their students (typically involving an academic competition for their gifted/talented students or a standardized test of some sort for all students).
3) Inventors and small companies who need to patent inventions.
4) Companies that need technical writing, or writing beyond what the typical “tech writer” (who once took 2 science classes) can provide. In many cases, this fits together with a patent application, as highly technical documentation is needed to obtain a patent.
Avery Enterprises President Bryce Avery has an MS in engineering from California State Polytechnic University (Pomona), is a licensed Professional Engineer in Maryland, and is a registered Patent Agent with the U.S. Patent Office. Before opening Avery Enterprises, he spent more than a decade as a civilian technical writer and test engineer with the U.S. Navy. In his college days, he was captain of his “College Bowl” team as both an undergraduate and graduate student.
