I'm a member of the Writer's Center (Bethesda, MD) and publish literary fiction, science fiction, mainstream fiction, essays and literary criticism. I read fiction and non-fiction for a literary magazine. I'm also a lifelong amateur radio operator, station callsign W2CDO.
I retired from the National Institutes of Health in 2012 after 33 years in the federal government and then I retired again, this time from SAFE-BioPharma Association, in 2018. I've lived and worked in the DC Metro Area since 1978.
I began writing science fiction in Mrs. Rosenthal's 5th grade class with weekly illustrated episodes of "Roger Robot and Squeaky Mouse." Somehow that led me to Joseph Conrad, William Golding, Walker Percy and the poetry of William Blake. And Chip Delany, Robert Silverberg, Ursula Le Guin and Harlan Ellison. There's a connection there...
