I'm a life long learner and an avid reader, with an eclectic academic background. It started with an AA & BA in History. Then add some graduate study in History and later doctoral study in Medical Information Science, now called the Biological and Medical Informatics at UC San Francisco. In 2007, I completed a Masters in Knowledge Management (Yes I know it is an oximoron) at CSU Nothridge. Someday I hope to return to graduate study and complete my PhD in History.
Professionally, I've spent twenty-seven years in technology mangement, consulting, around operations and support services, with over twenty-three years in senior leadership roles. Currently I'm the Executive Director of Technology & Chief Information Systems Officer for the Antelope Valley Community College District, in Lancaster, CA.
I believe that everyone needs a cathartic release. Whether it is hiking, running marathons, sports, or the rumble of a harley and fellow bikers; everyone needs something completely different from what you do to pay the bills. A few years back I turned to writing. Late in the evening, when the house is quite, I slip on my headphones, turn up the music, and emerse myself in worlds, characters, and stories of my making. It took a while, but I have finally come to terms with the fact that I'm one of those people that likes to tell lies to strangers, and kill people, for the entertainment of others.
I am intermittently active with SFF-OnlineWritersWorkshop. I encourage writers, of SciFi/Fantasy/Horror, looking for an active and supportive environment to check it out. I have also been a frequent attendee of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference. The friendliest and most supportive community of writers you will ever find. I strongly recommend Lisa Lenard-Cook's Discovering the Mind of Your Story, Matt Pallamary's Phantastic Fiction as well as John Reed & Lorelei Armstrong's Pirate Sessions.
