I grew up in Florida and now live in central Indiana, where I work in the environmental field. Along the way I spent a great deal of time in school, and earned degrees at both the University of Florida and Purdue University (two from each).
My career has not been linear. I've worked in a tanning supplies warehouse, hospital stockroom, as an analytical chemist, cardiac telemetry technician, regulatory chemist, economist, plant growth modeler, environmental project manager, and people manager.
Along the way I started and eventually shut down a web publishing company and a book publishing company, and wrote a short book about Indiana natural areas called Wild Indiana.
Interests include nature, nature photography, backpacking, writing, and my other websites: Eco-USA and EcoIndiana (I'm gradually shutting down CyberIndiana.) Occasional jogger who once survived a triathlon - my favorite near-death experience. Have more ideas than the time, money, or energy to implement them. Looking forward to what comes next.
