About the BellaOnline Today in History Editor

June 1995: I leave university with training in journalism, photography, and literature. Thinking I was going to work for a newspaper, I ended up teaching journalism at the international school I graduated from in Jakarta, Indonesia. That was the start of my career as an English teacher. I´ve taught history as well as literature and journalism partly because I´m deeply interested in stories. I don´t think you can immerse yourself in any one of these subjects properly without touching on the other two. Recalling the people, places and events of almost every day in history reminds us that the stories we are living now had beginnings we might have forgotten. It´s important, and sometimes a lot of fun, to remember them.

July 2011: Looking for an outlet for my craving to write, I stumble upon BellaOnline and become accepted as its Literary Fiction editor. I thought I would easily be able to fulfill readers´ expectations of a weekly article, but life had other ideas. Everyone knows an English teacher´s workload is Herculean (and some might say Sisyphean), so what was I thinking? Four years later, I love the fact that my articles can still be read on that site. They are evidence of my history with BellaOnline!

April 2014: I leave the classroom. I am currently in between careers, wondering where my story will take me (or vice versa). Writing is still very much a lure, though, so I´ve found myself back here with a whole new potential audience. Our stories are at once epic and intimate, lengthy and episodic. Ever since the English-speaking world started using the calendar (in 1752), we´ve potentially had 365 stories a year to share. Why? Because every day must be a significant day for someone somewhere in the world. I hope you´ll enjoy reading my retelling of a few of these.

If you have an idea for a topic, feel free to send me your suggestion and set me off on the research for it, which I´ll most likely enjoy doing. The more obscure, the better! Thanks for reading this, and enjoy your time on my site.
