I was born in southern California the middle of five children. I loved to camp in the mountains and swim in the ocean. We moved to central Minnesota to be closer to family and I finished up grade school and high school there.
I graduated from the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, MN with a degree in Mathematics and Air Force ROTC studies and a concentration in Physics, Computer Science and Music.
I met my wife in college while singing in the college choir and started dating after singing at a fellow choir members wedding. We married one year after college while I was in the Air Force and we moved to New Hampshire.
I Entered the Air Force after college and became a weather officer. Remember Tom Clancy's book "Red Storm Rising" The weather officer character was me.
After the Air Force we moved back to Minnesota to raise our growing family and I become a software engineer.
I became a Christian in 1993 through the ministry of KTIS Christian radio and the Holy Spirit. I have always been interested in issues of faith and belief and that is what you will find frequently discussed in this blog.
I like to fly real planes and remote control air planes, boating, reading, hiking, movies, laughing, singing, photography, having great conversations, eating great food and experiencing God's beauty.
