About Me

As with many computer geeks (profes­sion­als) my fasci­na­tion with bugs has led me to beekeep­ing, garden­ing in general, and devel­op­ment of a commu­nity garden near my Georgia home. I also lived in Honduras – amazing insects and unimag­in­able gardens – and Senegal, West Africa where I became profi­cient in Wolof and a connois­seur of ceebu jen.
