"A little nonsense now and then is cherished by the wisest men." What's a mid-40's divorced man to do after wrapping up twenty years in the US Navy? Why, start a career in teaching and writing, of course. Oh, and explore the world some more. And read everything possible. And go back to school. And enjoy every moment to its fullest extent. A teacher for the government by day, I ply my wares at night on my laptop, where I'm cranking out silly blog posts, socio-political commentary, poetry, short stories and novels at an excessive rate. If I was driving, I'd have been pulled over by now. Meanwhile, I have multiple novel projects in the works, all in various stages of development: some mostly done and some still in the idea stage, nothing more than a thought. Outside of that, I'm a rampant philanthropist at the nickel and dime level; that is, $5 here or $10 there, if not $50 here or $100 there, goes a long way to help people achieve their dreams, or their goals at least, and I do what I can to help them get there by contributing a little money and then providing some exposure. As I always say, every little bit helps. I focus my efforts on my current hometown of Baltimore, which I see as having a great deal of potential as a city if only more people will willing to invest in it. Beyond that, I'm busy with life, having fun, working out, going to parties, spending time with my kids and experiencing every thing possible in every waking second. When I burn out and die, I want to be able to say that I did everything that was possible for me to do. I want to die like I live: with a smile on my face.
