    Occupation: My businesses are Brilliant Soul, for energy healing, and All Calm Down, for guided healing meditation. I’ll be starting guided healing meditation Friday, December 5, at 9:30 am, at the Resiliency Center on South Main Street, and then on every first Friday. I’ve been an energy healer for a little over 13 years. I get to hear what keeps people from being blissfully happy, and do energy healing on multiple planes of existence. I also teach reiki classes, at my home.

I was a principal research scientist and program manager for them, specializing in using optical sensors for deep well oil exploration. I worked in their Ridgefield lab from 1988, and then moved with them to Boston in 2006, where the lab relocated. We had an apartment in Boston and our home Newtown for the last seven years, and I traveled between them. Before that, I worked in Ann Arbor, researching nonfossil fuel energy using laser-induced fusion.

    Occupation: I retired in 2013 after 35 years of teaching; 28 years at Nathan Hale Middle School in Norwalk, and the remainder at Newtown Middle School. I started out as a math teacher. In the early 1980s, when desktop computers were coming into popularity, NHMS started buying PET computers. They were huge, and had only 8k of memory. We started a computer integration class, and that’s what I’ve been doing ever since. The computers changed all the time and kept it interesting.
