I was born in small-town America and served in the United States Navy. I was a broadcast journalist, serving as an on-air talent in both radio and television and also behind the camera/microphone as a broadcast manager, director and producer. I have traveled the world and seen many things.
Following my departure from service, I began a near ten-year profession as a counselor to juvenile sex offenders and criminals. Here I dealt with the most depraved acts humans can inflict on one another. I tried to help repair these children's minds and prevent them from hurting again. Only God knows if I did. I pray I did some good.
Following the birth of my first child, I decided to stop raising the state's kids and raise my own. I enrolled in college and completed a degree in horticulture. I landscape part-time, run a small garden and am a full-time security officer at a nuclear power plant.
Since being here on Newsvine, I have also started my own conservative/libertarian blog called All American Blogger and started a podcast called A Field Guide to American Politics, which I try to do three times a week. Feel free to call in and chat sometime. Even if you are liberal. And can't stand me. That's ok. I'll win you over. Remember, hugs are free.
If you ever want to chat outside of Newsvine, I have 3 IM programs running on my machine:
Feel free to send me a message sometime.
