About Joe

My name is Joe E., and I'm a writer, a worker, a wonderer. I was given a copy of Louis L'Amour's "Autobiography of a Wandering Man" by a great teacher, one whose opinions still have a profound effect on my life and my creative processes. I've responded to that gift by living fairly unafraid to wander. I have worked as a nuclear powerplant inspector, driven tractor-trailer rigs, and taught children to swim. All are rewarding occupations, but I'll have to say that my own love of the water and of teaching puts the swim lesson job on the top of the heap.

More recently, as I have re-entered academic pursuits, I was the recipient of the Lester M. Wolfson Prize for excellence in poetry, and also the editor-in-chief of IUSB's Undergraduate Research Journal for 2014. I have assisted in editing two other research journals, including one dedicated purely to historical research, as well as a creative arts journal. I understand both academic and creative writing fairly well, and have always operated by the maxim that true genius is expressing difficult things in a simple way. Since we creative and bookish types also enjoy having livable incomes, I have worked in heavy industry for several years, mainly concentrated in aerospace and medical device manufacturing. There, I have gained experience as a draftsman in AutoCAD, as well as considerable experience as a CNC programmer and machinist. These experiences have allowed me to maintain a working relationship with math. Shop math has helped keep me sharp. I'll concede that the higher-level maths elude me. I pretty much check out after Trig, but in the arena of the math that I know, I am very comfortable showing and explaining the way that it works.
