I'm an American, but I've lived in England for many years. I was born and raised in San Francisco, but I've also lived in southern Illinois, southern Indiana, Dayton, Ohio, and the Washington, DC, area.
When I travel, I like to settle in for a bit, and really get to know a place. In the past, I've spent a few months in Wales, Gulf Coast Florida, and Asheville, NC, among other places.
I'm a passionate volunteer -- I love community gardens and orchards. England's full of them, and it's great fun working with other people to create beautiful places.
My strongest professional identity is as an educator -- I'm proud to say that I've helped thousands of people learn how to make better use of computers, both for pay and as a volunteer, and I've taught economics in colleges and universities.
When I have time, I read science fiction and non-fiction books.
