I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona where I played “black-top football” on the street in front of my house, basketball in the driveway, and had a short little league career. After graduating from high school, I spent a year and a half in college before deciding to enlist in the United States Marine Corps.
I served four years in active duty then decided to return to civilian life. Denver, Colorado became my new home where I found a job working at Merrill Lynch in a customer service call center. A few years later I completed a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. I later began working for another call center and decided to pursue more education.
I graduated with a Master of Science in Technical Communications from the University of Colorado at Denver. Now I live in Las Cruces, New Mexico where I edit, write, and provide training on a freelance basis.
