||I was a Naval Intelligence Specialist for 20 years. The work involved analysis of classified data, communications and weapons systems. In addition, I led a camera crew which documented U.S. military engagements and interrogations. I have worked in sales and recruiting since retirement. The thing that gives me the most satisfaction in life, aside from my wonderful, beautiful wife and two aging cats, is writing. I have always written. Putting down the words, the need to write, is an itch that can't be scratched, a compulsion that can never be fully satisfied. Aside from that, I enjoy cigars, painting, mixing drinks (I used to be a bartender), reading, relaxing on my screened porch, tinkering with my computer (breaking it and fixing it actually) and catching up on every sci-fi show I missed while out at sea for 20 years. Red Dwarf rules.
