Introduction for Jay_Angel

-Hello: My name is Jay. I was born and raised around Chicago, IL. I earned a masters degree and then I went on to work as a researcher for the United States Geological Survey. While employed by the USGS, I secured my first writing gig. I was writing a weekly column for the local newspaper that focused on hunting and fishing. Half way through my career I became bored and discontented so I needed a change. Change came in the form of a move to Anchorage, Alaska. I spent two wonderful years working, hunting and fishing in Alaska. But then it was time to move back to the States so I could be closer to my children. I currently reside in Southern Louisiana where I am employed in the offshore oil drilling industry. But of course, my story is not finished being written yet!

Working for the USGS seems like it would be cool. Nice to meet you.

It was a fantastic job for the 15 years I spent working for them. My children grew older and I became bored. So I needed more money and was ready for my next adventure.
