Background Information

Biography of Morton M. Rumberg

Mort is a retired US Air Force Officer who served as a Rescue and Survival technician teaching escape, evasion and survival techniques to air crew members; he survived a tour in Vietnam and barely survived two tours in the Pentagon as a computer systems action officer. Serving in the Pentagon ("Disneyland East" to insiders) was no picnic-- he says he should have received combat pay.

After serving 20 years in the USAF, Mort was an information technology consultant and a manager with a large, international health care insurance company designing computer business systems. (He laments that despite designing the systems, they wouldn't assign priority to his own insurance claims.)

Mort earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, a Master of Arts in Teaching, and a Doctorate in Education. He's been an adjunct professor of computer sciences for several universities in the Washington, DC area, including George Washington University, University of Maryland, Marymount University, as well as several community colleges.

The high point of Mort's life was, for 10 years, living with his wife Susan aboard "Irish Gold," a motor yacht berthed on the Potomac River. After several years of feeling waterlogged, Susan declared, "It's time to move to dry land." So, they packed up their life preservers and moved across the river to Alexandria, Virginia, with their American Eskimo dogs, Yuki and Kori.

After retiring from the private sector, Mort became an active writer, a volunteer with the Alexandria Police Department, the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, and was very involved with the Northern Virginia chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals.

Mort now resides in Gold River, California where he continues to write.  His other hobbies include painting, genealogy, traveling and magic.
