Description

My email address mike49mercury@gmail.com.  The AOL account to the left is long closed.

I am a technical writer. In addition, I have published over 300 newspaper and magazine articles about business, technology, and culture. My two favorite are "Financing Musical Theatre: The 'Dough' Behind the 'Do-Re-Mi'," New Mexico Business Journal, February 2003; and "Building on Mars," Plan & Print, September 1987.

Master of Arts in Social Science (Eastern Michigan University, 2010).
Bachelor of Science summa cum laude in Criminology (Eastern Michigan University, 2008) 
 
Security Certifications
  • Disaster Inspector Federal Emergency Management Agency
  • Incident Response Management Federal Emergency Management Agency
  • Frontline Supervision New Mexico State Law Enforcement Academy
  • Computer Crime Investigation New Mexico State Law Enforcement Academy
  • Adult CPR and First Aid American Red Cross

I previously graduated with high honors from an associate's degree program at Washtenaw Community College in criminal justice (2007).  I also hold an associate's in liberal arts from Lansing Community College (1981).

 From January 2004 to December 2010 I wrote the monthly "Internet Connections" column for the ANA Numismatist magazine. The ANA granted me two Heath Literary Awards: the first for an investigation into the origins of coinage; and another for a biography of Sir Isaac Newton's tenure as warden and master of the Royal Mint.   When I was working toward a private pilot certificate, I submitted essays to www.studentpilot.com many of which are still archived there. 

 Researching hackers in the mid-80s to mid-90s, I posted to Computer Underground Digest and Phrack. Other features appeared in local and regional business magazines.

I serve as vice president for communications of Austin Tech Republicans. I was elected a Republican precinct delegate in Ann Arbor Township (2006-2008).  I served for three years on the Washtenaw County, Michigan, county/city community corrections advisory board.  In 1992, I ran for Congress as a Libertarian.  I served two terms on the Board of Directors of the Michigan State Numismatic Society.  I also served (2009-2011) as their webmaster for www.michigancoinclub.org. In 1991, I was a delegate representing the Michigan patron community at the White House Conference on Libraries and Information Systems.
