About Me

A little about me? Well, my life has been anything but boring.  I grew up moving around a lot and joined the Army after high school because I had no clue about what to do with my life, and I didn’t want to end up living in a van down by the river. (Anyone else chuckle at that reference?)

I was a Military Policeman in the Army, with a tour in Germany and Ft. Bragg, working in law enforcement, field training, and even a stint in Germany as an undercover drug investigator.  Little side “trips” included Honduras, Saudi Arabia and Iraq for Desert Storm, Cuba back during the Haitian Refugee Crisis, and a few others.  After my tour, I left the Army and became a police officer in Florida, where I was a patrolman, a gang investigator and a SWAT officer.  It was fun for a while, but I needed a change, and so I left the force, got a Bachelor of Science in Computer Networking and started a new career as a computer geek.  Better pay, better hours, and I haven’t been to the Emergency Room once.

I ended up getting back into the Army, in the Reserves, and had a couple more trips to Iraq.  The second time as an investigator, and the last time as a specialist in Improvised Explosive Device (IED) investigations.  My job was to write and teach a course on bomb scene investigations for the Iraqi Police, Federal Police and Army.  It was the most fulfilling job the Army ever gave me.

These days I work at my job in the tech world, write when I can, and spend the rest of the time with my family, which usually means chores and home improvement projects.  Every now and then we get out for a camping trip, or a hike in the beautiful Maine outdoors.  We love finding good coffee and micro-brews. Travel is our passion, especially for historical places, and we’ve seen some pretty cool places, but many more are on the bucket list.
