My name is Mike Nichols, and I live with my wife in a mid-sized southeastern US city. I am in my late sixties and retired due to mental disabilities in 2005. We have a daughter in her late 20’s and a son in his mid 30’s.

The majority of my working life has been in music: first as an orchestra conductor and teacher, then in a private teaching studio. Between these two were several years in the computer industry, as a publisher of third party manuals, a software developer, and Senior VP of Information Technology.

In 2007 I started this blog with the intention of providing the information about the Anxiety Disorders that I had to struggle to find. You can read more about this on the About This Blog page.

In 2008 I started doing freelance web design and development. Over the next two years it grew into a 14 hours a day, 7 days a week monster. I have cut back, but am still quite active. Check out my my freelance site
