     When I am asked, "where are you from?"  I have to pause and consider just how to answer the question.  My father was in the Air Force and my first 16 years were spent on different Air Force bases in Missisippii, Illinois, New Mexico, and several locations in England.  However, I started high school at Cedar Shoals High School in Athens, GA and I've lived in the area ever since.

      I am a big time lover of movies of all types as well as well done television shows.  I can watch BBC mysteries, epic action movies, and everything in between.  I love reading books of all types, but especially enjoy histories and techno thrillers as well as popular science.  I also enjoy photography and traveling.

      I got my start teaching social studies at a high school and after a period of years decided to give being a media specialist a whirl.  I teach one class at OCMS, a video news production course that produces the school video news show.

     I am a product of the Henry W. Grady School of Mass Communication at the University of Georgia where I earned my undergraduate degree in journalism.  My masters degree and specialist degree also come from The University of Georiga.
