Professional

I'm fantasizing I can make a career as a professional writer. I recently left a job as tech support for an Internet Service Provider. I've been hired as a Database Report Writer by the Seneca Nation of Indians for their Health Department.

Under normal circumstances, a website's pages should have a common unifying design. However, since this is an experimental web site, each page will differ wildly in design and theme and change periodically as whimsy strikes me.
