About the Author
Jay Greenstein is a storyteller. His skills at writing may be subject to opinion, his punctuation has been called interesting by his editors—but he is a storyteller.
He is, of course, many other things. In seven decades of living, there are great numbers of things that have attracted his attention. He is, for example, an electrician. He's also an engineer and logic designer, one who's designed computers and computer systems; one of which—during the bad old days of the cold war—flew in the plane designated as the American President's Airborne Command Post: The Doomsday Jet.
He spent seven years as the chief-engineer of a company that built bar-code readers.
He's been involved in scouting activities for thirty-five years, with thirteen of those years spent as a scoutmaster.
He joined the Air Force to learn jet engine mechanics, but ended up working in broadcast and closed circuit television, serving in such unlikely locations as the War Room of the Strategic Air Command, and a television station on the island of Okinawa.
He has been involved in sports car racing, scuba diving, sailing, and anything else that sounded like fun. He can fix most things that break, tile a floor, build a stair rail, fix the family car, sew a fairly neat seam, and has raised three pretty nice kids.
But all of that is just background and source material for one central fact: He is, and always has been, a storyteller.
