Only 17 days without a job since I was 11 years old. Never collected unemployment or welfare. Needed it but never did. With the help of my wife taking care of our four babies I worked my way thru college; only took seven and one half years.

Hobbies and other:

  • NHRA Sports (Bracket Racing) Drag Racing mechanic and driver 14 years
  • Full Scale airplane pilot
  • Radio Control airplane pilot (current hobby)
  • Many newsletter, newspaper and magazine writing jobs (all part time, mostly for fun)
  • Author of “True Story I Swear It – Maybe” (my third book, first to be published)
  • Member, Texas City Rotary Club

My writing often pushes the envelope of reader tolerance and offers independent thoughts that are outside the norm of “go along, get along”. I don’t profess to know everything but if you are willing to think freely you just might discover some new ideas on a number of subjects. Because of my writing style, politically incorrect subjects and refusal to be like everybody else I have been fired from nearly every writing job I had; in one case I got fired three times. This may be good for you if you enjoy fun reading. Actually I’m really a nice guy and I am not any kind of radical for any cause and I’m certainly no talk show idiot. Just having fun and trying to get us all to be honest in our thoughts and consider other possibilities. Remember about 500 years ago we thought the sun circled the earth? If you truly remember that I need to talk to you. See?
