Former US Marine. MOS 6482 Deceptive Electronic Countermeasures Technician for A-4M, OA-4M, EA-6B, AV-8A, AV-8C, AV-8B, TAV-8B. Stationed at Cherry Point, NC, for 9 of my 11.5 years in the Corps.
I now work on radiation therapy equipment for cancer treatment with a Swedish company called Elekta, Inc. (http://www.elekta.com).
Married since 07 June 2007. I have three sons: the oldest is a US Marine veteran and is now an Air Traffic Controller with the FAA in Augusta, GA; the middle son is a USAF veteran and is married to an active-duty USAF SSgt - they have just been stationed at McChord AFB just outside of Seattle, Washington, as of November 2014 ; and my stepson is a t-shirt designer in Carrollton, Georgia.
I love building 1/48 aircraft, mostly US Marine stuff, with a mix of cars, helicopters, tanks, motorcycles, and a ship thrown in to round it all out. I'll do the occasional 1/72nd kit as well, and a few 1/32nd kits, too.
I live in Indian Trail, North Carolina, with my wife, Kelly.
