 Out of my mind.   Back in five minutes.

Graphics Wrangler, HPS Simulations


Hi there.  Kind of you to stop by. It's sort of a tradition for the egoists who call themselves "webmasters" to put on their sites a page of information about themselves--which would explain the page you're looking at. I'll understand if you move to hit the "back" button now.

No?  Alright...

If you'd like to talk to me about doing multimedia work for you ( web site design, traditional & digital photography, computer-based instruction, graphic design/production, voice-over) please drop me an email.

I'm a red-haired middle-child "Scorpio" of Scots/Irish/Slav parentage born in the Chinese Year of the Dragon under a full moon and I like to take a drink now and again.  That ought to tell you pretty much all you need to know about me.  In the event that you'd like to know more, some of the less unsavory things on my resume include:

bulletMS Multimedia Technology, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh 2003
bulletBS Communications, Indiana University.  ...uhm, of Pennsylvania, 1986-ish, minor in history and the effects of chemicals on the human nervous system.  While there, I enrolled in ROTC, thus enabling me to become a
bulletTank Platoon Leader, 1-103d Armor, 28th Infantry Division.  I base my military philosophy on the three greatest--to my way of thinking--martial minds in American history, namely:
bulletJames Longstreet
bulletGeorge Patton
bullet"Oddball"  from the movie "Kelly's Heroes."  

...so, before too long, I got on with my life's work as an
bulletAnnouncer and "Program Director" (ha!) at a bunch of  radio stations you've never heard of.  They say I've got the perfect face for radio.  Highlights of my career include staying awake & on the air for 74 hours straight during a marathon charity broadcast, and learning that Fred Allen was correct when he said "Radio is a bag of mediocrity where shallow men with carbon minds wallow in sluice of their own making," to which my response was "you can't fire me; I quit." But I'm not bitter.  The pervasive scent of Dektol about me is from my time as a
bulletFreelance ("no regular paycheck") Newspaper Photographer and law-firm Forensic Photographer (there really was no fee unless we got money for you), where I documented various forms of human misery such as train wrecks and bodies burned beyond recognition by defective consumer products.  This was, as you can imagine, a great deal of fun.  Gainful employment at last was found in the guise of
bulletUNIX Network Administrator for Verizon, the Big Beefy Heart of Communication (who, even as we speak, are implementing the Skynet Global Domination System, thus paving the way for the dystopian future of the first "Terminator" movie.  You think it's a coincidence that their spokesman is Darth Vader?).  I used to be a  telephone installation technician in the inner city but grew weary of being shot at and not being allowed to shoot back.  Everyone should be a rabble-rouser at least once in their lives, so I did a few terms as a 
bulletChief Steward/Unit Representative with the Communications Workers of America
bulletFirefighter and Public Information Specialist, Ingomar Volunteer Fire Company, McCandless, PA.  The wet stuff, it go on the red stuff.
bulletI am (partially) to blame for Niklaus Stephen Thor Hamilton, the guy who'll be deciding who goes up against the wall when the revolution comes; and Alexandra Elizabeth Hamilton; I'm telling you right now the first one of you guys to touch her is gonna get an arm broken. Most likely by her.

Still reading, this?  Huh.  Ookay...

When I'm not working, which isn't all that often, I like to read anything I can get my hands on (books, magazines, cereal boxes) but especially so-called classic literature and histories.  Hemingway is the Man, despite that unfortunate incident with the shotgun very near the end of his life.  Dumas, Bierce, Steinbeck, Poe, Mallory et. al. Dos Passos, Frost, Atwood, Wilde; they're like gods to me. Have you ever read Frankenstein by Mary Shelly?  Give it a try; it's one of my favorites and none of the movies have really captured its essence, not even the Mel Brooks classic (and certainly not that insipid Boris Karloff debacle where they couldn't even get Frankenstein's name right).  Music good: I'm a subscriber to the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra but enjoy virtually all forms, especially jazzJethro Tull, rock and/or roll, blues, Jethro Tull, swing, big band, Jethro Tull, space, folk, bluegrass, Celtic (including absolutely anything with the Pipes,) and Jethro Tull

Slow day for you, eh?  Surely you should be cleaning out your gutters or something..?

I take my physical exercise hiking, camping (preferably in the winter), cycling, fencing, golfing, playing chess (it is if you do it right), and in the shooting sports. I consider myself to be "armed and gregarious." 

I like to play poker once in a while, but, you know, I'm not very good. 

One of my Goals In Life is to be the last person on Earth with neither a tattoo nor a body piercing nor a cellular telephone.  

I'm a "cat person," but dogs are fine, too.  People who don't like cats, I've found, generally don't like themselves very much--cats can sense this.   

 

Great Googly Moogly what a blowhard.  Get back to the HPS site!
