I am a Geotechnical Engineer licensed (and practicing) in the State of California. I graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a B.S. Civil Engineering in 1991.
I live in Alameda, California, and have lived all of my adult life in the East Bay Area.
I dance, primarily vintage ballroom and Irish ceili, but am also familiar with English Country Dance, swing, tango, Irish stepdance, and some ballroom Latin dance.
I am a contributor at Wikipedia, and have made significant contributions to the Wikipedia articles on geotechnical engineering (and related topics), some articles on construction and construction materials, Irish dance, Irish stepdance, articles on Alameda and Oakland, and minor contributions on articles about a few places in Colombia, and various political topics. I expect to contribute to the articles on similar topics here, mostly excepting the political articles.
