This is my background!
I am a retired computer specialist. I have a bachelors degree in business administration with emphasis on computer science, accounting and math. I worked for one year on my masters in mathematics and decided I didn't want to be a topologist, so I worked another year on my masters in psychology. I finally sent money in to get a PHD in metaphysics and divinity from the Universal life church.
I spent many of my early years looking for what I wanted to do with my life. I worked as a retail clerk, typewriter mechanic, electronic technician, machinist (jig builder apprentice), inspector, accountant and office manager, salesman, teacher, and finally I became a programmer and software engineer. My last six years of work were keeping computers and networks running for the federal government.
During all that time, I was heavily involved in community theater. I took courses from professionals, I acted multiple times, I designed and built sets, I acted as stage manager, director and producer.
After I retired I wrote over ten books about science fiction, that I thought had meaning to why we are alive and what life is all about.
I studied psychic phenomena such as the reincarnation, akashic records, channeling, psychometry, ufo's and aliens, kudalini and meditation, yoga, and other metaphysical subjects.
