Introduction for Dysschord
Retired at 53, and loving it! I suppose you could say my new “occupation” is traveling. My wife and I, (both U.S. citizens,) with our two dogs, old travel trailer and pickup truck are currently exploring Mexico, and having a blast! We will be headed to Central America next to explore the countries and cultures, not to mention the beautiful coastlines along the way.
Hobbies: Well, this is easy - Traveling! But I can also add blogging about our travels, working on editing my first book to be published in the first half of 2015, reading and browsing the internet for interesting articles.
Favorite food or drink – Hmmm, this one’s not so easy! I love food. Put it in front of me and it will be my favorite dish. Oh, but please don’t serve me cucumbers or celery. Yuk!
So on to a little (or maybe a lot) more about me...
My Background: After years of working in the computer field as a business owner, (as well as time spent as college instructor, personal assistant, and property management,) I turned to social service work in a marginalized community and founded a non-profit organization. This has consisted of years of managing a homeless shelter, as well as event coordinating, speaking, and teaching.
Organizing, writing, speaking and teaching all come naturally to me, and I approach each new situation with creativity and strive for a positive outcome.
My interests are in sociology and psychology, and extend into multiple cultures and countries through personal travels and experiences. Knowing people and understanding what they need and want is something I have learned over many years of working with the public. My specialty area of research is within the “T” part of LGBT – the transgender population. I have worked successfully with people in all niches of life and in various cultures in regards to race/ethnicity, age, religion, gender, sexual orientation, et cetera.
