Yet another thumbnail bio:

In college, I was a peer tutor -- a student helping other students with
freshman comp, remedial writing, and ESL. Did well at it (ahem) and loved
it. Would go back to it in a heartbeat.

Both my engineering advisor and a project leader at Rockwell (I worked there
nights copying design change notices) suggd I'd be bored to death as an
engineer & happier as a TW. Nearly 20 years later, I'd say it's worked out
pretty well for me. Didn't get a degree to "credentialize" my career
choice, but that was a problem only in getting the first job.
