I'm a physics Ph.D., working as a scientist and a professor. I'm a former co-moderator of LifeRing's Ning site, a former member of the LifeRing Board of Directors, and a longtime founder and facilitator of online and face-to-face support group meetings. A former alcohol addict, and a onetime weed addict and abuser of other street drugs, I'm a Kaiser Permanente Intensive Recovery Program (Walnut Creek) graduate, and have been happily clean and sober since 2010. I live in California and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
