He spent ten years in the U.S. Navy as a Boatswain's Mate before being forced into shore duty where he ended up in New York and met his lovely wife. Since he has been out of the Navy he has worked at a temp agency for a proxy company which he does not miss one bit. He's worked in some of New York's greatest delis where he learned how to really make a sandwich and is now back in his hometown working as an exterminator. He started writing while he was in the Navy writing mostly poetry to entertain the crew on the mess decks. His poems have been published in a local weekly newspaper in New York and a Canadian magazine. He really likes to hear from his readers so feel free to drop him a line and let him know what you think.
