My real name is unimportant. What is important is what I do here. Which isn't a lot. I refuse to believe that all I've done has just been a dream surely you will think otherwise, but please consider the source before you pass judgement.

I was born in a mangier, not too far from MIT. In Sept of 1960, I was an Air Force brat, and have lived in many parts of these United States.

I've been experimenting with electronics and physics since I was 7 when I realized with some wire, a light bulb and a 9 volt battery I could illuminate the interior of a ceramic owl and make it's eyes shine for Halloween.

Nearly all of my modest talents and skills are self taught. I can't help but tinker and when possible fix things. It's just what I do. Much to the lament of a dog I owned some time ago.

My experiments, are numerous and varied. But many in my early years involved moderately high voltage, as I explored the exciting field of electric shock.

I began my first career working for a TV repair shop at 13. Where I earned $1.00 an hour for testing tubes and general cleanup of the shop. Later, I would repair TV's and stereos before leaving for the Navy when I was 17.

I currently live in Millington Tn.
