    Well, since I created this new forum, I figured I might as well post something even though a lot of the regulars here probably know me.

    I am a serial entrepreneur, having started, run, and/or sold something like a dozen or more businesses over the past 30 years. I've worked in a bunch of different fields all over the map, from holistic health to computer sales to the music business to adult media to real estate to management consulting to film and broadcast media and more -- and I still have my fingers on the pulse of several businesses I am part-owner of, but my biggest passion is probably holistic healing, psychology and counseling, with music and film being a close second.

    I attended Oberlin College (but didn't graduate -- I got distracted by work opportunities.) I've done coursework at a number of other schools as well, and have been interested in distance learning since the mid 1990s, when I first saw an ad for John Bear's book in the classified section at the back of a magazine.

    As far as distance learning, I've always been interested in (and alternately amused and disgusted by) the antics of degree mills, and providing a resource to check out validity of various schools (or, as Rich Douglas says, businesses masquerading as schools) is, I think, one of the most valuable and unique aspects of DegreeInfo.

    I am delighted to be a participant in this community, and I hope to be a little more active in coming months than I have been.
