About Me
Single dad with a twelve-year-old daughter. Retired US Army. Worked for the local schools for five years and then bailed after 9/11...Couldn't stand to be on the sidelines. Now I'm with Federal Law Enforcement.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Cycle and hike. Obviously play games when I can. Most of my reading is professional these days (dull!), but I break out once in a while and get to read something fun. Just discovered some new music interests: The Black Angels, The Shins, and Death Cab for Cutie. Otherwise it's mostly 60's and 70's rock and contemporary jazz/fusion. Most of my movies these days are G or PG fare that's acceptable for my daughter, though I've introduced her to the stage (Phantom of the Opera; Wicked) and now she's hooked so we've been watching a lot of musicals lately (to supplement our usual bevy of romantic comedies and animated features).

Status Update

Holy smokes! Nearly a year since I last posted and, sadly, the tune's the same - Gaming time is still approaching zero. Just a few short scenarios with my buddy Ted in 11 months. Fortunately, it's looking as though fortune is smiling on me. While my job is moving into overdrive and consuming more hours and effort than I sometimes feel I can muster, and my daughter is officially a teenager (and all the drama and other assorted wonders that that life altering transition brings), my new…

I'm Registered for Expo 2009!

Woo-hoo! Just completed my registration! I'm gonna make it back for the first time since the first Expo! And I'm dragging along several first-timers (and my daughter) with me. See y'all there in May!

He's flying out on Alaks Tuesday - he's babysitting a goofy ass civilian out there. His oestinable boss though Smitty runs the show. Dupont - the little town he said that was created there?

Well Joe, I did leave Kansas (Ft Riley) - went to Iraq - and then came back (Ft Leavenworth) for good. I'm retiring next fall, I'll take my uniform off in July probably.

GREAT To hear you plan to come back to the Expo. Eric probably won't, he's an O6 now, and fully engaged with his duties. He ususally escapes to the 3 day cons on the east coast, but not the Expo. I've been gaming with mark Hinkle and an old friend of mine Will Riley the last couple of years. My friend Will found me on consimworld after we had not seen/spoken since I left for the Army - it's been good to reunite.

Glad to see you here and that you hooked up with Smitty. I caught up with the short version over on smitty's page. Looking forward to gaming together again sometime in the future.

Sounds like you are liking Fed law enforcement, which is goodness.

Think I'm starting to figure this out!

Congratulations on finding a new love of your life. I was working on it and nearly remarried, but discovered that she had many of the same issues as my first (abused by her parents as a child). Probablly the only lesson I learned from the first experience. Now I'm taking time to regroup and focus on what's important - daughter, career, health, and trying to get back to gaming!

Gee...that story sounds sickeningly familar - like my first wife....hence the second wife who you can tell I adore with the many pics of her up here! I was scheduled to go to the Point and teach and it only got worse....
