I specialize in developing resources to help people make career decisions and plans.

I have acquired my expertise in career information by working more than 35 years in this field.

I am now writing a series of books for Meyer & Meyer Publishing (previously known for their books about sports). As Senior Product Developer at JIST Publishing, a division of EMC/Paradigm, I authored or co-authored more than two dozen books.

I have been a researcher and developer at Educational Testing Service, where I helped develop the SIGI PLUS computer-based career information system. I oversaw the updating and enhancement of the SIGI PLUS database for more than 15 years. I have served as a board member and as president of the Association of Computer-based Systems for Career Information and now am on the board of its successor organization, the Alliance of Career Development Professionals. I am also a member of the National Career Development Association and a frequent presenter at their meetings.
