I was born and raised in Montana. Following college I went out to see the world via the Air Force. Presently I'm instructing this class, CIS 105, here at EMCC. I spent 20 years in the Air Force as an Electronic Warfare Officer. When flying for the Air Force, I was the back-seater in the F-4G Wild Weasel. The rest of the time I was behind the typical LGMD-6D (Large Gray Metal Desk - 6 Drawer), mostly doing electronic warfare intelligence analysis. Today I fly a Cessna 182 for the Arizona Wing of the Civil Air Patrol, the Civilian Auxiliary to the United States Air Force, as a Scanner (sit in the back seat with a camera) or Observer (sit in the right front seat as navigator). When not flying, I spend my time maintaining my home computer network and protecting it from "The Threat" -- the spam, the viruses, and the other trash that wanders on the internet.
