?

I used to host several world famous gameshows, most recently 'name that Chick' and 'name THAT show'. but apparently ever since the new 'network' took over, these shows have gotten cancelled. I was just about to start hosting, 'call the tune' with a very technologically advanced method of posting up snippets of tuning and beginnings of songs, but that also got tossed aside in the shuffle.

I hustle pool for rent money, take care of the unruly compost heap, do the household chores, as well as a bit of entertaining, comedy, acting...

peace.

I am a member of my IATSE

I am a member of my IATSE local which provides stagehands for all the local concerts, theatrical productions and other various events that require people with that type of expertise. It certainly provides a relative variety of work environments and people to work with; not to mention shows to see!

The light bulb just went on

The light bulb just went on in my head...

I utilize a bachelor of science in Industrial Design from several decades ago to support my insatiable art habits. I work with graphic designers, art directors, marketing communication departments and production managers to produce and distribute offset and digital printing. After twenty-five years representing Waller Press in San Francisco, I now represent Consolidated Graphics which is the largest volume producer of commercial printed material in the United States.

My extra-curricular activities since the turn of the century include serving as board member for the Rex Foundation and Black Rock Arts Foundation.

I am Senior Anthropologist for the Mind Shaft Society.

I am the general editor and

I am the general editor and director of the Thomas A. Edison Papers at Rutgers University. We've been editing the estimated 5 million pages of documents in the archive at the Edison National Historic Site in West Orange, NJ, site of Edison's last lab, for nearly 30 years.

We have about 165,000 document images online at http://edison.rutgers.edu/ scanned from the first three parts of our microfilm edition. We are currently filming part 5 of 6 and eventually will have microfilmed about 10% of the total. If I can ever find the funding for it we plan to put the remaining microfilm images online sometime in the future. In the meantime we are planning on putting online about 20,000 images of documents we have been collecting from other repositories and private collections. About 5,000 of these have been put online so far.

We are also publishing a 15 volume book edition of selected documents that are transcribed and annotated. These volumes provide an overview of Edison's career and an entre into the large collection of documents. One of the unique aspects of our book edition is that we include artifacts as documents. Volume 6 is coming out this August in time for the 25th anniversary of the Pearl St. central station in New York City, which will be September 4th.

Besides the edited documents I also authored a biography, Edison: A Life of Invention, which was published by John Wiley & Sons in 1998.

I'm a freelance writer and

I'm a freelance writer and editor, and mostly work on writing/maintaining Web content for various people.

This enables me to work while staying home with the dogs. Which is good, because I don't do too well cooped up in offices.

The last office I was cooped up in was the one belonging to my then-day job as editor of MicroTimes magazine, RIP. Which definitely had its good points for the 14 years it lasted, cooped-upness notwithstanding. That was my last formal Day Job, and I've been freelance ever since.

I work for the US Navy at Naval Base San Diego. I do environmental management in support of on-going Navy operations. I've only been at this gig since November, though,and before that I was an archeologist for the US Forest Service. I like this new work better.
