I am writting to you again because I´d like to ask some questions about
your life because there isn´t much information about you on the Internet
(or I haven´t found it).
There is some information on the Internet but I would like to
some more questions, if you don´t mind.
First of all: Where and when were you born?, Where did you grow
where do you live now?
I was born and bred in Denver Colorado, USA. I have lived in San
Japan, but I still call my mountains home, and I live in Denver now.
What did you study?
I studied at the University of Northern Colorado for my BA in
Philosophy and the University of Colorado for my MA in English. These are two fields
that don't seem to have any application in business, but were fun anyway.
What do you do now?
In real life, I am a technical writer for the Bureau of Reclamation.
I did a
website for them on Decision processes--http://www.usbr.gov/guide
Where have you worked throughout your life?
I have held lots of jobs in high school and college and beyond,
robbed at knifepoint on a graveyard shift at 7-11 to washing dishes at a country
western bar to being a snack hostess in Japan and an English teacher consultant
to a Japanese wedding company. I settled down at Reclamation 12 years ago. I
also teach composition at a local university and write and...
What are your future plans?
I will probably work at Reclamation as hypertext doesn't pay the bills. I
want to work enough overtime during the year so that I can go SOUTH of the Tropic
of Capricorn during the winter months every other year. This year, I did an
artist in residency type program in Melbourne Australia. I am setting up one for New
Zealand in 2004, and would love to do one in Chile or Peru or something in
What are your hobbies?
I like to hike in my mountains--I usually just go off with my
survival kit and
journal and forget to tell anyone where I am going. I often take trails, but
sometimes I just head out cross country. We live in a beautiful wide open
country with mountains above 14,000 feet (about 4,000 to 5,000 meters).
What do you like doing in your free time?
Well, after hosting the ELO chats, being on the Board at trAce,
eliterature conferences, writing eliterature, doing my email, helping my friends,
etc, my spare time is somewhat limited. I also walk my cat for a half hour in the
morning and evening--she is very fat.
What are your likes and dislikes?
I like rainbows and strawberries, black currant wine, old recipes,
into odd mysteries, poking about graveyards, exploring new places, traveling. I
don't like people who go through life without thinking or questioning.
If you could answer these questions as soon as possible I would
grateful, I know you must be very busy but it would be a great help to
me as I have to hand in my work on the 2nd June
Thank you so much for your help.
