WHO I AM

I am a happily married guy living in Selma, North Carolina with my wife and three boys. I have a background in radio broadcasting, fire protection, and some technical/computer experience. I currently am employed as a Senior Engineering Specialist at one of the world's largest media and entertainment companies (company policy is that I should not mention the name).  I have been a newspaper columnist, blogger, podcaster,  and a TV and radio talk show host.  I still occasionally get to do voice-overs for radio and television as well as video productions.  I have been known to run for public office, run P.A. systems at churches, and volunteer with some scouting organizations.  I have a love for God, my family, and my country, and I admit that I fall short on patience when people mess with any of those three.   I have had a lifelong love/hate relationship with both politics and religion, and don't shy from having opinions on either.  My hobbies include shooting, theology, and using, fixing, and enjoying fountain pens.
