The editor of Just Above Sunset and the daily web log As Seen from Just Above Sunset is a former systems manager for a large California-based HMO, and a former senior systems manager for Northrop, Hughes-Raytheon, Computer Sciences Corporation, Perot Systems and other such organizations.  One position was managing the financial and payroll systems for a large hospital chain.  And somewhere in there was a two-year stint in Canada running the systems shop at a General Motors locomotive factory – in London, Ontario.  That explains Canadian matters scattered through these pages.  Otherwise, think large-scale HR, payroll, financial and manufacturing systems.  A résumé is available if you wish.


The editor has a graduate degree in Eighteenth-Century British Literature from Duke University where he was a National Woodrow Wilson Fellow, and taught English and music in upstate New York in the seventies, and then in the early eighties moved to California and left teaching.


The editor currently resides in Hollywood California a block north of the Sunset Strip, with his cat Harriet.


The photographs?  On the left, Café Bonaparte just off Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris, on a hot June afternoon in 2000, and on the right, Bryant Park in midtown Manhattan five years later.
