I have PH.D in Biochemistry(CITY UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK 1986). I, before venturing into college science study, considered a more liberal, and what I considered to be of a rounder, and of a higher and broader nature related to my intellectual inquiries-curiosities personal goals and needs for creative expression and fullfillments.

Background Information

I chose a career in Science after failing medical school admissions, and never gained successful employment as a scientist-one of the prerequisites for my choice of profession was the availability of employument and income for technical professionals. After graduation and without gaining employment became welfare supported, then homeless in the Washington DC/Baltimore area. I then traveled on foot most of the eastern states, California and Mexico. I currently reside in the SKID ROW area of Los Angelos and am self employed assembling my observations and thinking about people, America, science, and the world in the form of Poetry, Essays, and science writings. Though I "Wound up on Skid Row" I still had not found good evidence of any reflecting life to see successess rather than failures in my endeavors-as I had failed at nothing-either my school work and its caliber, or at any of the qualifications for employment. And though the question can still be asked why I live on skid row without a job and a doctorate in science-it has not been asked or researched by any of possibly one million faces I had encountered on my travels and I am still lectured on the situation to "get myself in shape". ( to compile and assemble all of these critiques and to realize them successfully I,d have to be a mountain of a person, an exact paragon of unfailed virtue, ... a speechless machine in a population of the deaf that I could have nothing to say of truth or meaning related to my situation, but only excuse, or defensive response to ridicule, until I should gain employment and have exact credentials and hence status and right. Books and computers are both speechless and deaf, as I above deduced to be essential for visability in the eyes of others and the qualities necessary for an audience and credibility and I sneakily hope I am read and understood.

Birth Place
Baltimore, MD USA
Additional Information

Since this was written I have become a graduate (masters student)student at The California State University Los Angeles. I have accumulated 16 credits with a GPA of 1. Although I sense some support(not monetary as it appears the faculty have tenatively catagorized me as a good potential communist who isn't supposed to like money. I have been asked the question twice and each time re-affirmed my fondness of money but it does not appear to have registered)...sense some support, am intelligent, and am on academic probation for the last two terms with associated appeals that the department members, who would also not know my face well from the brief exposure(exposure is correct..from the smelly floor wax and stone polished lab tables of biology labs to the urine soaked corners and cold atmosphere of skid row to the old wooden floors, small class chairs with ink wells and pencil grooves remenicient of elementary school and social awarenesses akin to B'nai Brith sex parties)... would also not know my face well may as well "neutrally" dismiss me with respect to my records, little time I applied, if not with respect to my scientific habits of absolutes, theorums, proofs, if not with out immediate awareness, but knowledge of, a lack of real intellectual conceptions (in their dogma, enigma elucidations)...going all the way where their noses mate the books and readings. (Who's who in going all the way one yet , but half of the females in the classes are better than average for even playboy-some for even miss America). With new mental revelations, a near unrelatable-to past, a whole philosophical society new to me, I had already arrived at on my own, I again have, if asked (i.e "speak") hardly have anything to say (i.e. "I hardly know what to say"). "Can't you just answer the questions and leave out your own ideas"-I cannot as if I had anything not philosophical to say or comment on. A dog will only bark and tell you nothing.
