In college, I thought about becoming the first non-superhero to save the world. I got my BA in International Development and even lived and worked in a developing foreign country. While there, I discovered I liked toilets and refrigerated food far more than I'd previously realized. I also really liked this guy... fourteen years later, I still do. And he really loves the good old US of A.
After a little rearranging of my life goals, I set out to reform the villains of the world as a teacher for the California Department of Corrections. I found joy in helping those "villains" realize they were really potential superheroes on the wrong path. Then my own little superheroes came along. And all I wanted to do was help them learn to be heroes in their own lives. Best decision ever. Eight years later they save my world everyday. Now I have another goal: save teenagers from inane entertainment. There are many amazing writers already working hard on this. I only hope to humbly join their ranks one day.
