When the government runs out of money, the first group that should not be paid is Congress. After all, their the ones who didn't do their job.

Aspiring Author

After over forty years of IT-related work, I'm now semi-retired and living in Europe, writing & riding with the local cycling club.


Kilometers of road cycling year to date

I have a goal this year to ride 8,000 kilometers. So far, I'm ahead of pace, but not by a large amount. I have enough play that I can take a rest day if I need to.


Years active duty service

I joined as a Computer Operator, working everything from Mainframes, Mini computers, small computers, NCC, Base Comm, COMSEC, IA, and project management.


The number of books written to date

I've been working on a book for almost three decades now. I hope that since no one seems interested in employing me, I might get the time to finish it.

Life is too short to sit inside and play on the computer all day

Don't get me wrong, I'm a computer guy and I like it. But when the weather is nice (rare), I love to take advantage and ride outdoors.

IT-Related Stuff

I started programming in 1979, and I've worked with IT for over forty years. I have experience in various fields, from mainframe computers, minicomputers, UNIX System Administration, Oracle database administration, COMSEC, Information Assurance, Solaris System Administration, Network Security, and Program and Project Management.


I'm working part-time at the Giant-Wegberg bike shop as a mechanic. I've biked in Europe since 2002. In 2015 I joined the Air Force Cycling Team and rode with them until my retirement in 2018. I currently ride with my local German radsport club, SC-Wegberg. I'm training and planning to ride the Scottish North Coast 500 in 2024.


You won't find me on Facebook or Twitter as I do not support those platforms.
