I am hard to define. I am a geek, I always have been. As of 2007, I'm 53 years old. I once taught high school physics and chemistry at a psychiatric hospital to schizophrenics, then moved into the public school, where things were crazier, so I quit teaching and became a computer programmer specializing in software for agencies that care for mentally retarded adults.

Uh, but that's what I _do_ not who I am. Hmmm. I'm the long-time secretary of the Baha'i Assembly for Topeka, Kansas, and have served for years as an roaming tech assistant for Baha'i assemblies in the central states.

On the bar, I'm the radio guy (n0oxf) and a member of the Tech Team that gets to read stuff ahead of publication (gloat gloat gloat) which is why I have this damnedable electronic snerk collar.

In the 1632 Universe, I'm the semi-official non-fiction editor of the Grantville Gazette, and author of a series of non-fiction in Gazettes 1, 2 and 3 as well as a recent update in Gazette 10. I am the author of "Canst Thou Send Lightnings?" a short story in Gazette 7, and author of some of the folk tales about Brillo in The Ram Rebellion.
