Hello all, and thanks again for joining me on this journey. In my professional life, I am a Senior Instructional Designer with Interactive Media Corp., a McLean, VA-based company which develops multimedia training for corporate and government clients. Before joining the IT industry I studied and taught in my academic field of U.S. history; my teaching background includes stints at Yale University and the University of Baltimore.


In my private time I am an avid railroad preservationist, photographer and writer. From 1994 through 1996, I was a volunteer brakeman and conductor at the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum, located at 601 W. Pratt Street in downtown Baltimore, Maryland—the birthplace of North American railroading.  Beginning in April of 1999, I entered train service with the Walkersville Southern Railroad in Walkersville, MD. Join us any summer Saturday or Sunday for a scenic five-mile ramble on the former Frederick Secondary of the once-mighty Pennsylvania Railroad. I also proudly serve as Assistant Editor of Railway Preservation News, the online magazine of railway history and preservation edited by Bob Yarger and published by Hume Kading.
