About me

I am a retired Navy Civil Engineer Corps officer and former enlisted nuclear reactor operator, have a couple of degrees in mechanical engineering and a professional license in civil engineering. I hug trees yet (hypocritically) drive a large custom van on occasion. My wife and I have home educated (aka “homeschooled”) since 1993, “graduating” our three older sons (29, 26 and 19) and still working on our youngest (17).

We’re probably different than most people you know, but almost all of our best and oldest friends are very different than us – we like it that way!
