Eleven years of my career, of my life, were spent on staff at Kalamazoo College. I freelance for the college still, mostly because, well, I just need that Vitamin K. I love academia. It is a world of intellectual wonder and curiosity, an ambiance of sparking ideas. One of the publications for which I freelance is called BeLight, which is the meaning of Kalamazoo College's motto: Lux Esto. Three articles appear in the current (January 2010) online issue of BeLight. (Click on title to view article.)
