Born and raised in upstate New York, sunshine and the University of Southern California drew me west. My Air Force service was followed by 20 years as a C-130 aircraft maintenance officer with the California Air National Guard. From 1980-2005 I was Chairman of the Department of Aeronautics at Mt. San Antonio College and led the college's Flying Team to championships as Top Community College in the US seven times. Meanwhile, I continued to accrue flying time as a FAA certified flight instructor, logging over 7000 hours. I now reside in a floating cabin on Powell Lake in British Columbia and a city-folk condo in Bellingham, WA.

I am an outdoors kind of guy. You will find me most often at my floating cabin on Powell Lake boating, hiking, fishing, reading or writing. I use my quad to explore the back country. I enjoy touring inlets and bays along the BC coast in my 24-foot Bayliner, as well as flying to remote destinations in my Piper Arrow.

My book series entitled 'Coastal British Columbia Stories' highlights the people, places, and off-the-grid adventures in a region where mountains drop into the sea and lifestyles focus on self-reliance and a different sense of purpose. As for writing, non-fiction is my main contribution to the writing world, but science fiction is my passion.
