“Everything is very simple is war but the simplest thing is difficult.”

Carl von Clausewitz

War is the real school for life

The audio book master lives in San Antonio with his wife and daughter.

I grew up in southern California. Played little league when I was young and got picked on in school. Decided I needed to do something with my life and attended college at Humboldt State University. I majored in molecular biology. I am a laboratory technologist my trade and specialize in working with blood. 

I am prior service in the military and was deployed to the combat zone for over a year. I was in Iraq January 2003 – February 2004. I was stationed in Mosul for the majority of deployment. When you go to war you don’t come back the same. 

I enjoy swimming with sharks, playing sports, neutron stars, mountain biking, chess, computers, super-massive black holes, writing, chemistry, skydiving and wrestling bears. 

Family is the greatest treasure in life. Be sure to call a friend or family member once a day. Thanks in part to my mother for buying me a computer and giving me a smart phone.
