Personal ...

I grew up in the flyover and ebrace my roots. I've put down new roots though and have an equally productive life with far more economic oportunities. I currently teach Business and IS Courses for undergrad as well as MBA courses. I also work full time in the IT Sector leading a team of alpha nerds who provide desktop support, systems architecture and implementation, LAN/WAN throughput, printing/print metrics, and all things in between. I'm thinking of writing a book but haven't actually moved past a rough outline. I'm not certain that too many people would actually buy/read the book and I am remiss to spend time on an activity that cannot be monitized. I cannot think of that many people who would find it an exciting read learning about the various threat surfaces we face as a digital society. Maybe when I retire.

I like people and enjoy being a servant leader. I've long ago learned that you do not hold grudges, grudges hold you. My goal now is to launch my children into adulthood as productive members of society and servant leaders. Then I will start a small family brewery after constructing a solid business plan and securing financing. Absent of financing I will continue to brew in my basement brew kitchen. That's the great part of having goals...

My military career spans a humble beginning as a junior enlisted troop to becoming a military officer. I cherish my military time and have no regrets on the decision to serve. Military is chosen family. If you have military experience please consider joining your local American Legion and participate in their gravesite honors for fallen veterans. The families of the fallen are thankful for the time that the volunteers donate to ensure that their loved ones are honored for their service. The American Legion fills a manpower gap that allows families of veterans to have full military burial services.

Nothing that I do is possible without the love and support of my best friend and wife. Every day she reminds me that love exists. She also reminds me that there is more to life than me. She is a gift who continues to give.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the pen.
