My lifelong interest in Chinese culture began with a college class in Chinese art history.  I have a B.A. in history from Washington University in St. Louis and a M.B.A. from the University of Arizona.

I lived in Asia for 13 years.  I was a Peace Corps volunteer in South Korea for 2 years working in a tuberculosis control project.  I worked and studied in Taiwan for 4 years and then in China for 7 years.

I was a Red Cross disaster volunteer for 12 years and currently volunteer as a docent at the Arizona- Sonora Desert Museum.

I participate in a number of coin forums using the nickname “manymore”.  If you find the topics I write about interesting, you may want to read my posts at the following forums:

I plan to discuss matters concerning my personal life in more detail at Skinny Rooster.
