My name is Stephen C. Callender. I am a Medical Technologist and received my BS in Medical Technology from C. W. Post College (branch of Long Island University) and did my hospital internship at Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. I am a certified MT(ASCP) #875339 by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. I have worked at the New York Blood Center, and then I later worked at Neometrics (later bought by Natus Corp), a computer company producing custom Newborn Screening for Newborn Screening at State Health Departments across the United States. I worked as a customer support expert resolving their many diverse problems remotely connecting to their personal workstations or by their network servers. I currently work in the laboratory at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. My hobbies are Chinese Calligraphy and Computers. My best friend (Thomas Lee) gave me the Chinese name 史提芬 when I was 13 yrs. old. The Chinese culture intrigued me from the first day I met him. I later studied on my own and practiced writing Chinese characters. I studied Chinese Calligraphy for 23 years under the late Dr. George Young (楊 裕芬 教授) learning the four major styles. Above is a picture of Prof. Young and myself with the Four styles of Calligraphy in the background.
