Service Description

Writing has been a natural side product of my profession as a researcher and teacher: I have experience in technical, educational, grant, and prose writing. Professionally, I have a background in Agricultural Biochemistry, Chemical Physics (Master's degree), and teacher's certification in secondary level chemistry, physics, and mathematics. I have been a Lecturer in Physics at the University of Missouri, St. Louis and am presently teaching part time at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, Missouri.

Besides my writing experience, I have experience in:
-Analytical biochemistry and trace metals studies.
-Protein and enzyme chemistry related to cancer research.
-Basic research in Gallium/Arsenide substrates for circuits leading to "smart" guidance systems in missiles.
-Science education.

I am a member of the Missouri Academy of Science and past member of American Chemical Society, American Association of Physics Teachers, and National Education Association.

Personally, my background is varied: I have an agricultural background and I presently operate a small Guernsey farm in central Missouri. I have had a life-long interest in flying and flight, and am a past editor of the newsletter for Chapter 32 of the Experimental Aircraft Association, for which I have written several articles, including short biographies of some of the more notable members. I have written two screenplays and have begun a novel based on one of the screenplays.

I do not work...
