``The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is
a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an
exalted activity, will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy.
Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.''

I was born and raised in Florida. I taught myself to program on a TRS-80 in the summer of 1977. My interest in astronomy began by listening to Jack Horkheimer's telephone tape, ``What's up in the night sky,'' every night one winter. After spending four years with the US Army, I went back to college. I met my wife in my sophomore year, at the University of North Carolina. We were married in 1990. I graduated with a BS in Physics and a minor in Mathematics. I went on to get a MSEE at the North Carolina A&T State University. I am now the Subject Matter Expert (SME) in Machine Learning for L3 Technologies, Advanced Programs Division.
