Hello! I am very interested in learning how to create webpages. I have dabbled in it before through my job at UB, but never really learned the basics. And, I like a challenge!
I worked at UB for 26 years at the Earthquake Center (officially known as the Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering Research – MCEER) as its manager of publications. It was a great job, but unfortunately, the funding ran out this summer and most of the professional staff positions were not renewed. I am taking some time to relax and thought that taking this class would add to my skill set, which is primarily writing and editing technical information.
In my spare time, I like to travel, which is a good thing because most of my family members live out of town. I visit Troy NY, Tampa, and Pittsburgh a lot. This past April, some friends of mine and I decided to go to the New Orleans Jazz Festival, which is where the photo of me was taken. If you like good food and a friendly atmosphere, I’d recommend a trip to New Orleans.
