    In 1979 business manager of TenPercent at UCLA, the first university sanctioned gay paper.

    Maintained B+ average at UCLA. Dismissed March 1981 from UCLA due to groundless charges that I was a "big time drug dealer." No criminal charges ensued.

    Then I went to Northrop School of Engineering for certificate in computer science and helped teach incredibly intelligent severely disabled students.

    Led Bisexual Center.

    Diagnosed with AIDS in 1985. Buried a heartbreaking number of my friends over a ten year period and had been told that I would not survive. I was a contributor to POZ organization "Being Alive" when it began. I led their long term survivor group for almost three years. Being Alive continues to support the community.

    In 2000 I rescued an Abyssinian cat which came from the pound and started feeding stray feline. They have since become well trained and sociable.
