The obvious place to start is Microsoft. They hire lots of people
for writing. They probably even do video now. I consulted for them
a few years ago and, while it's a sort of strange corporate
environment, they're into EVERYTHING, which can be an advantage
for someone with as divergent interests and experiences as you
The east side of town, which is the Redmond/Bellvue area (where
Microsoft is located) also has a quite robust medical instrumentation
industry. I'm not in that field myself, so I can't remember any
of the names, but there are a dozen or mor small and growing
companies in what's the high tech corridor on the east side.
Good luck. Seattle is definitely the most beautiful place I've
