My Resume

Please note that phone numbers and addresses have been removed from the online version of my resume, for the protection of all listed institutions and persons from would-be spammers and pranksters.  (Sadly, those people DO exist, and many of them seem to gather online.)  Relevant information is available upon request.

Also, please note that the inclusion of this resume on this blog is not necessarily meant to imply that I am or am not seeking employment at any given time.  It should be primarily considered to be a networking resource.  (It should also probably be repeated that though these organizations and companies are listed here, my blog does not represent any of them and expresses only my own personal thoughts and opinions.)

Enjoy!
