I completed the American Society for Indexing’s Training Course in indexing in 2016, and am today a freelance indexer and sole proprietor of Purple Sage Indexing.

I’m also a substitute teacher (K-12) in my local school district.

I have bachelor’s degrees in both Political Science and Economics from San Diego State University. I’ve worked mostly in administrative positions in the past, but I’ve also worked a short stint as a freelance information specialist in 1998, while living in Nicosia, Cyprus.

As a volunteer, I have served in several different lay leadership positions in both theologically conservative and liberal churches, and have facilitated regular book discussion groups for church groups, political meetings, and just for fun, over the years. Currently, I’m chairman pro tem of the Nye County chapter of the Nevada Green Party.
