When the publisher of Space LaunchNews became ill, I started publishing space·launch·info.

Work Experience:

I recently provided Technician related services for Verizon Wireless customers in a retail location. I tested people's mobile phones, repairing them if I could, and replaced them if necessary.

I worked as a mail sorting machine operator. The machine has two computers operating it and communicates to another through a fourth machine. By using the machine to pre-sort mail before dropping it off at the post office, significant postage was saved.

For three years I was a Customer Service Representative selling Palm Pilots over the internet and handling phone inquiries about orders. After leaving the company, I was leader of the Central Florida Palm Users Group for two years.

I publish a newsletter, "space·launch·info" more as a hobby, than as a business. It is made up of public information available from NASA. I sell the newsletter to the tourists that line the Indian River on launch day to give them information about the flight they are going to see launched.
