About the author of this page



I am a third-generation player piano owner. Having grown up with player pianos all around me, they have become an integral part of life. I have played them ever since I could reach the pedals.

After working in a hectic, unfulfilling job for ten years and getting nowhere, I finally wised up, quit my job and went to college full-time, completing a Bachelor's degree and later, a Master's. The part of which I am proudest is that I completed the degrees without ever taking out a student loan.

I am currently employed by the Kansas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, a cooperative state, federal, and university organization devoted to research and graduate education. I also operate a home-based business specializing in editing, proofreading, word processing, and data input. Additionally, I do free-lance writing.

Other interests/hobbies include:
