I am a medical technologist and work in the areas of: hematology, coagulation, urinalysis, blood bank, and microbiology. I perform tests to help in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. I am also an instructor at my local college teaching microbiology to nurses, dental hygientists, and respiratory technicians, as well as teaching anatomy and physiology to laboratory technicians. I enjoy writing short stories, learning Koine Greek, researching, yard work, street magic, as well as reading science fiction, fantasy, and just about any science book. My favorite use of my time is spent with my family, especially my little niece Rebecca.
