I grew up Tucson, AZ, a city that’s “just right” in terms of size, topography and food. I spent six years in the U.S. Air Force, three of them in England. After five years of bouncing between school and a wide variety of jobs, I got back in uniform in ’08 and hosted the Handgun Podcast for three years. Wanting broader horizons, I became a gov’t contractor in 2011. Now I travel the globe while pursuing a Master of Liberal Studies with Arizona State online, which I intend this blog be a capstone for. I’m a blessed husband with an ever-patient and loving wife, and joyful father to our son.
I’ve been to 4 out of 7 continents and swum in 3 of the 4 oceans. I’ve been a member of the NRA, Mensa, a concealed weapons instructor, Boy Scout, PADI Open Water scuba certified, and I got stick time piloting a Cessna when I was thirteen. A motorcycle was my only vehicle, freezing rain or shine. I’ve built medical-grade digital cameras, taught kids to swim, driven a truck for a living and spent Thanksgiving in a British jail cell.
I love gizmos, design, analytical thought, good food & drink, and pop culture.
