I grew up in small town America and at nineteen I couldn't get out fast enough. Now thirty years wiser I've returned to view the place of my youth with renewed reverence.
Four distinct seasons in middle America provide frequent change and an opportunity to enjoy their unique flavor. I enjoy the warm summer breeze, the majestic trees of color in autumn, snow covered winter vistas, and fresh spring rain.
As a former network engineering manager for a major health care provider, my formal education is replete with technical jargon and how-tos. I worked and studied hard, graduated summa cum laude, and was afforded positions of responsibility. I enjoyed the path it provided.
Now, the patio, a fresh breeze, Scrivener and my MacBook Pro provide sanctuary. I've published a few magazine articles, spent a couple years exploring the process of special effects in movies and television, and was awarded the opportunity to work with Sony Imageworks to cover the creative problem-solving technical achievements that went into making Spider-Man 3. It earned the cover story for issue 14 for HDRI3D magazine.
I'm currently working on a novel scheduled to be published in 2011. Leveraging recent discoveries and new science, it's a fictional account challenging age old discussions concerning creation, God, the universe, and our existence.
