About the Author

He soon went active duty into the United States Army where he has     spent most of his adult life, serving on both active duty and in the reserve components.  He has, in     the years since joining the military been activated and served willingly in three conflicts (Desert     Shield/Storm, Joint Endeavor (Germany), Iraq Freedom (Baghdad, Iraq)).

He earned his     Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Nebraska where he also earned his Master’s     Degree in Physician Assistant Studies (with a focus on Family practice). He works now as a     Physician Assistant openly aiding all within his scope of practice.


Always a visionary, a dreamer, he set out and began writing his first book of poetic-philosophy in 1990, with a piece from it being published in the anthology The Space Between 1994.  He continued in his writing quest and explored many different thoughts, ideas and forms of technology. To include the concepts and realization of his first book "Messages; Reflections of Being";  which was published after great trials and tribulations.
