I have an extensive background in English, Writing, (Creative Writing - 10 books published on Smashwords as e-books and 2 paperbacks at PublishAmerica), Computer technology and associated software (Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint), Visual Basic and Dreamweaver (web page design). I graduated in 1993 from Memphis State University with a Bachelor of Liberal Studies in Writing. Prior to that I spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy traveling all over the world. I have worked as a teacher for 3 years in a high school Vocational Technical program teaching computer design and repair, cabling and networking and computer infrastructure. I earned my A+ certification during that time. At the present time I am working as a Substitute Teacher in California concentrating in the areas of Special Ed and ASD (Alternative Schools).
I can draw on experience ranging as widely as loading/unloading freight for a trucking company, writing grant requests for at-risk kids, managing an office for the Fedex Pilots Association, developing database programs for over 60 different companies in the metro-Memphis area and teaching computer related software programs like Microsoft Access, Word, Excel and Visual Basic in 2 college settings. I feel like my life experiences allow me to adapt to most of the challenges I face in today's fast-paced world.
