I moved to Owings Mills, Maryland from Huntington Beach, California in September of 2007, to take a teaching job at the local technical college. I've been a tech writer, tech trainer, college instructor and computer geek for most all of my career and over half my life.
Got let go in May2011. (Had a beer whilst on a field trip to a vendor conference.) Moved to Red Lion Pa at the invitation of my former supervisor. She then got let go in March, and has since moved back home to watch over her parents. I pulled the pin on my retirement options for a relatively reliable income. I live in her house, paying the mortgage and utilities so the livestock and I have a warm, safe place to live and she doesn't lose the house. (And, no, our friendship was never romantic in any way, shape, or form.)
I am smart, risking, and loving.
