I created this web site as a place where I can highlight my writing ability. 


Herein are stories, ponderings, and articles I penned. Most of them are short as I want you to spend a few moments, read a few things, and then do what you really need to do today.

A Little Bit About Me

I was born in 1966 and I'm getting better with age, I'm a husband, father of 6, Retired, Army Veteran, and a dreamer. 

I grew up in an era and culture that spurred the imagination. My childhood friends, hiking the Wasatch Front, BB gun wars, Dungeons and Dragons, and other games. Vietnam, Kennedy, Nixon, Landing on the Moon, Star Trek, Star Wars, and a little bit of the ADHD, helped grow my imagination.  My life traveling the world and being a part of teams that had folks from all walks of life in the military just built upon that foundation. 


In the U.S. Army, I served on Active Duty for 20 Years. I worked hard and played hard, did more before 6 AM than most people did all day, I am Paratrooper “Being All I Can Be” and a Platoon Sergeant in “An Army of One”.

Two divorces, 3 marriages, 2 dogs, 3 cats, and 6 wonderful beasts, I mean children, later, my imagination is brimming with ideas that belong on pages for people to enjoy! Here you go!
