Having grown up in Long Beach, California, I spent a decade in Seattle and currently live in England, originally in Kent and now in Yorkshire. I have 25 years' experience in computer graphics programming and website design and 15 years' experience writing about coffee and beer.
I've written a novel and I have contributed articles to local CAMRA publications, Tramlines, and SmellTheCoffee.Com. I have also written music reviews and blurbs for tourist attractions. I have appeared on local radio as Sheffield's resident American coffee aficionado. Among my many jobs I have worked on a research project on the Sheffield Flood of 1864. I have also been a digital photographer of antiques and of tourist attractions. I currently work in a university library.
I have a degree in Radio, TV, and Film Production with a minor in Music Composition and a diploma in Computer Programming, and I can speak a bit of Spanish, French, and Russian. And, of course, I am fluent in both British and American English.
