I am a writer with a fairly wide range of interests, so my Wikipedia edits cover quite a few different areas. In addition to what's shown below, I've worked in computer science and microelectronic engineering, and I own a bookstore in Red Lodge, Montana.

Closed Captioning and Court Reporting[edit]

My primary area of technical expertise is in closed captioning (I wrote the "World Book Encyclopedia" article defining closed captioning).

Where I Live[edit]

I live in Carbon County, Montana. Slowly but surely I'm trying to add information about the small towns in our area. I wrote a booklet about the Smith Mine disaster of 1943 for the Carbon County Historical Society:

My Who Pooped in the Park? Children's Books[edit]
