Have worked "on the road" on electrical transformers and other large electrical apparatus for 32 years.  Was a bricklayer before that, and a Computer Science major in college still farther back.

Home is now Atlanta, Georgia, after it being Ohio for most of my life.  Worked in Canada for 9 years, lived there for 4 (Nova Scotia), ending in 1994.

I love my wife, computer games, traveling, beverages, arguing, philosophy and writing.
