About me

I began my professional career as a pharmacist, and after ten
years of "count & pour, lick & stick", I went back to school to get
my PhD in pharmaceutical chemistry at Oregon State. I became
interested in computer-aided drug design, and did a postdoc at
Penn State, where I also worked for two years at Minitab, Inc. I
moved to California, where I worked from 1984-2005 as a scientific programmer for Elsevier-MDL, a software house that provides chemical structure databases and software for the chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotech industries. Since 2005 I have been pursuing an MS(Ed) in Online Learning at CSUEastBay, and teaching computers to kids in the East Bay area. Throughout my career, I have coached age-group and high school swimmers.
