adamhollett.com is the personal website of Adam Hollett, a technical writer in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.


I am a technical writer at Shopify. I help support a large documentation website for our commerce platform, and I write Ruby and Rails code for our documentation platform and automated tests.

I work with and contribute to documentation for the static site generator Jekyll and Shopify's template language Liquid.

My LinkedIn profile has more details on my work history and experience.


I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Technical Writing from Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario. My main technical writing interests include automation, usability, and accessibility.

I hold a BA in English Language and Literature from Memorial University of Newfoundland. My main literary interests are unreliable narration and magical realism. Some of my favourite books include Pale Fire, Fifth Business, and Watership Down.

While at Memorial, I was involved with the Grenfell Campus Student Union, the Memorial English Students' Society, and the Writing Centre.


Crossword puzzles I've made have been printed in The Algonquin Times in Ottawa, Ontario, and in The Muse and Recess Weekly in St. John's, Newfoundland.

I sometimes create crossword puzzles for employees at Shopify.
