About

The name:  A number of years ago I took an introductory class to film production at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco.  One of the assignments was to produce a short documentary and I did mine on violence in professional ice hockey.  When I showed the final product to the class, the instructor said with total disdain, “well, it is good Dada.”  Only later did I take ownership of producing “good Dada.”

Me:  At this time this is a place for me to revisit the writing I did while getting my Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in History at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon.  I earned my Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) at Warner Pacific College, also in Portland, Oregon.

Favorite quotes:

“I won’t eat anything that has intelligent life, but I’d gladly eat a network executive or a politician.”  Marty Feldman
