I'm a former trainer with the Dun & Bradstreet Corporation. I quit, however, in October of 2000 to pursue my dream of becoming a writer. In route, I became homeless temporarily and lost my stuff (though not my esteem). Most recently, I spent seven years lecturing in the philosophy department of UNC-Charlotte, where I previously obtained an MA in Liberal studies and Advanced Certification in Professional and Applied Ethics.
