I am a retired Information Technology Executive with over 40 years of experience in the aerospace industry. In 2012, I was selected to contribute to a book of poetry published to celebrate the Arizona centennial titled Arizona: 100 Years, 100 Poems, 100 Poets. In 2015 my poem “Tapping on Cobblestones” was published in Between the Lines. I was fortunate to have additional poems published in the 2016 edition and to have been interviewed by the BTL staff about my work. I am an “at large” board member for EPIC Group Writers and I chair a monthly poetry group meeting sponsored by EPIC.
