About me

Gender Male
Occupation Technical Writer
Location Northern Virginia, United States
Introduction Hello there. I live in Northern Virginia with my wife of 17 years, eleven-year old daughter, and seven-year old son. I was raised in the Virginia hamlet of Village, and haven't lived in any other state in the United States. I left teaching (English, high school) in June of 2006 after seven years for a job as a technical writer/editor. My wife and I both attended George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. I'm a diehard fan of the New York Yankees, Dallas Cowboys, and of course, George Mason men's basketball. If you want to know anything else, just read. It's mostly all here.
