I'm a sixty year-old gay man. I’m trying to adjust to single life after the end of a twenty year relationship. In November 2008 I was laid off by a privately held global telecommunications corporation based in the United States after a thirty-one year career. I returned to work in March 2009 for the American subsidiary of a global telecommunication company based in Paris. I was subsequently laid off in July of 2009. I did a stint as a contract worker with an IT outsourcing company headquartered in Silicon Valley. My last job was working for a small IT consulting firm based in Boulder, CO. That gig ended in December 2016. I'm currently on hiatus looking for a new adventure. I’m HIV positive and I'm in remission after cancer treatment.
