Profile: Liz Bennefeld

Personal background
I worked as a freelance editor and writer from 1984 to 2014. Previously, I worked in a regional bank's operations center and as a computer programmer for an insurance company. My husband Al and I live in Fargo, North Dakota USA. Al worked as a field technician (mainframe computers)for Unisys for many years, and then as a computer programmer. My B.A. is in English and philosophy, but I studied psychology, chemistry, and mathematics during my first two years of college; the varied background was useful for editing jobs.

Our activities and interests include computers, electronics, astronomy, instrumental music, photography and amateur radio. We both are voracious readers. Although we both have retired, I continue writing poetry and short stories, and I continue to create photographic artwork.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Al and I run SETI@home because we believe there are other intelligent beings out there somewhere. Perhaps awareness of their distant presence would broaden our own views on what constitutes an intelligent species and encourage us to be more responsible stewards of the resources on which we and the other living
things on this planet rely.
