About Me

 Born and grew up Columbus, Ohio's west side, to an Irish newspaperman father from Boston and a mother whose family were miners and boilermen. I remember the steam engines chuffing on the spur line running near my grandmother's house, and the warm summer nights on the porch before air conditioning. Big extended family and terrific holiday German cooking by my grandmother. Enlisted United States Air Force, served Far East, Tactical Navigation cryptologist decoding Communist Chinese air communications. Returned to Ohio to several jobs before beginning university studies in 1976.
