About the Author
has enjoyed a life that is varied in location, vocation, and activities. He started in the land of tradition and history, Hampton, Va. and is now on Maui. He was in the Navy during Vietnam. He followed a career in oceanography and EE (signal processing). His focus included sonar measurements from an ice flow, sensors for the Strategic Defense Initiative, and space-based lasers. Throughout his journeys he watched how things work in society, government, and industry. The way we often pretend and let others pretend gave him the inspiration to write. He often heckled during his career by writing songs about his associates and management. He is now writing these thoughts when not biking or swimming.
