About Me
I'm retired from aerospace and defense industries; I'm married (40 yrs.); I have 2 beautiful daughters, 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. I majored in Physics and Math @ Cal Poly Pomona University, am an avid amateur astronomer as well as an armchair theologian, theoretician, philosopher and somewhat of a political junkie. Most significantly, I'm a born again Christian. I'm actively a freelance writer and accomplished guitarist/composer.
