About the Author

Latest update: March 14, 2020
I am retired, but still want to contribute to society and do so in a way I enjoy. So I started this website nine or ten years ago. I write about the things I have learned and experienced during my life and careers. I research and try to contribute knowledge and other items that folks will find useful, interesting, or fun. My online scribblings have attracted over three million page views (all sites combined). The internet is truly amazing.

I have paid experience (except where otherwise noted) in the following industries, professions, projects. The list is more or less in reverse chronological order. I've no doubt forgotten a few. I'll add them as I remember.
