Bloggers PhotoI was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah where I attended school and obtained an undergraduate degree in earth science. My true love has been astronomy, and I was fortunate to secure the position of Planetarium Curator at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science within a year of graduation. I held this position for some fifteen years and then had an idea of converting the Museum's auditorium into an IMAX theater. Only a handful of such facilities existed anywhere in the world at that time. I opened the theater after some four years of fundraising and planning, and it performed exceedingly well. Unfortunately, I was then victimized by heavy metal, chiefly mercury, that entered my body via fillings in my teeth and the dissimilar metals of two crowns. This led to a near-total health collapse and the loss of my position with the Museum. Fortunately, the theater did well, and IMAX began referring prospective customers to me to assist. Thus, I trained myself as a consultant in this field. That I could work from home and largely set my own schedule allowed me to have adequate income over the next twenty-five years. Eventually, I also added theater design to my repertoire of services. IMAX's migration from museums to Hollywood, coupled with the economic downturn spelled doom for my practice, and I unwillingly entered retirement a couple of years ago. A joy I had had in earlier years was celestial cartography. I picked it up again and published two star maps. I'm now working on an Atlas of the Constellations--a reference level work that will take years to complete. I also enjoy sailing, ham radio and disk golf. Several years ago I placed third in the seniors division world championship for disk sports. Poetry now consumes a lot of my time. I have a lovely wife, Marci, who has just finished a historical novel about her grandparents, set in the 1909-1931 time frame. She's shopping for agents, hoping to obtain representation for "Oranges in December." We live peacefully near the waters of Puget Sound with two cats and our golden retrievers, Betsy and Belle.
