I am a veteran of the U.N. Peace Keeping Force in South Korea, a former Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa, and I also taught at the secondary and post-secondary levels. I worked in corporate technical training and course development, and technical document production. I was also a urban public school board member and substitute teacher. I was a multilevel baseball and softball coach for ten years. I created, managed, and operated two small businesses involved in document production and computer integration for more than fifteen years each. I am now retired, and when not working on computers, I am writing in the computer user forums, or writing fictional stories.
