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 motorcycle ride, or a hike in the beautiful Maine outdoors. Travel is our passion, and we’ve seen some pretty cool places, but many more are on the bucket list.
