Hello and welcome to my website

Wonder and creativity are part of my world. I love making people smile, surprising them with a different perspective, or lighting up their neurons. Below is a little bit about me and some of the marvels you will find here.

I am a multi-talented individual as you will see from exploring this site. My path has been to choose writing as the mainstay of my expression but lately I’ve gotten into producing short videos.

I was born in California and spent part of my growing up in Idaho as well. I’ve lived in Washington, Oregon, and Vermont. I’ve also traveled extensively across the United States and taken trips to Southern Mexico, the London area of the UK, and Puerto Rico.

University of California, Stanislaus is my alma mater. My work has included various positions in the food industry from field hand to cook at Campbell’s Soup and USDA food inspector. I’ve also worked in a camper factory, gold and silver dealer, retail sales, janitorial services, and house painting.

Life is an adventure. Sometimes it’s tough and sometimes it’s beautiful. There is always something unexpected around the next corner. On even the most boring day, there are always amazing things surrounding you. Open your eyes. Take a look. It is a privilege to be alive.

This site contains links to my videos, information about my books, an off the wall humorous feature called, “Rants in the Pants,” a bit of poetry, and some photography. I will also produce an occasional newsletter. Be sure to sign up! As my site grows more features will be added. I enjoy comments whether positive or not. Enjoy your explorations here and share them with others.
