I was born in 1970 in Wheeling, WV and have lived here all my life. I come from mostly Irish Catholic coal miners and railroad workers. My original academic interest was in teaching foreign languages studying both French and Spanish in High School. After high school I married and had two children. My first jobs were waitressing and hotel housekeeper and Medicaid Billing Clerk. I received my Associates in 2003 studying social services and child development. I took several years off from college to focus on working and trying to raise a family. I returned to school in 2006 and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice from West Liberty State College (Now West Liberty University) in 2008. I worked in the security field for 13 years. My interests include politics, law, history, travel and language. I have been called a conspiracy theorist at times, but often remind my critics that often the only difference between a conspiracy theory and history is 40 years. I believe it is the responsibility of every citizen to hold its government accountable and to push for the government to serve the people not the other way around.

In November 2019 I started a podcast called Project 99 where I talk about politics, psychology, language, history and other topics from the viewpoint of the 99 percent. It is available on anchor, spotty and many other platforms. You can also follow the podcast on twitter at project99cast.

An Unwilling Prophet I wrote this journal about experiences had in 2002 but the feelings from time to time remerge as history inevitably recycles itself. As yet another coup is being orchestrated in Venezuela and another country in the middle east finds itself in America's cross hairs, at least I know I am not alone in my belief that only the thinnest of veils separates paranoid fantasy and the mechanations of empire.
