I have a deep, abiding interest in web communications and technology, user experience, and information design which stems from a lifelong curiosity about how things work and a desire to figure out a way to make them work better and do more for more people.
My experience with online communities goes back to the days of 300 baud modems and the CompuServe Information Service which provided my first e-mail address in 1985.
In addition to the work I do with web sites and online technologies, I am an avid reader and a lifelong writer. I am a film buff who has seen more than 75% of the AFI Top 100 movie list which is a plus as I am also an irregular contributor to Cineblog…because it’s not about the popcorn.
My published short fiction has appeared Lavender Ink and The Reflecting Pool, two literary magazines which are now defunct, and I am the holder of a “Best of the Festival: Feature Screenplay” award from The American University. I have also participated in and “won” National Novel Writing Month in 2004, 2005, 2007, 2009, and 2013.
For fun and exercise during the winter I throw stones at houses at the Potomac Curling Club.
