My History

I was born in St Louis, raised in Alaska — Seward, Anchorage (high school), Fairbanks (grade school) — went to College in Upstate NY (Cornell, full scholarship), lived in North Carolina, New Orleans, and Georgia, and now live in SoCal.  I’ve been in every state except New England.

I built a computer out of switches when I was a teenager; took to PC’s right away, introduced them to the Marine Corps with word processing software, implemented email, local area networks, mainframe to PC conversions, all ahead of time.

After transferring to civilian life, I developed a 3D interface for CompuServe, and then joined an Oracle consulting company 15 years ago. I have 3 published articles on Leadership in “The Cursor” a game development industry magazine.

I have spoken at the Game Developers Convention several times, and was a speaker at several Software Development conferences.

I’m a repeat speaker at West Coast Writers, teaching technology to writers of all disciplines.

I have finished 3 novels, and 3 screenplays, and have a number of works in progress.
