I'm a former Army Grunt, Huey Helicopter crew chief / door gunner, Nuclear, Biological & Chemical Warfare specialist, a tactics instructor who taught Anti-Armor ambushes, and Military Operations on Urbanized Terrain (MOUT) at the United States Army Infantry School. Or maybe I'm a struggling author because I have written articles, contributed to books and maintain an extensive blog at www.symbioticpublishing.com. I've been told I'm really good at firing people by our Human Resources department (you'd think they would know) so maybe I'm a hatchet man. I have been a licensed California driving instructor, worked as a legal clerk, been a new car salesman, machine gunner, mechanic, restaurant manager, day laborer, Dragon gunner, cook, security guard, club manager, gas station attendant, platoon sergeant, system engineer, instructor, sniper, truck driver, scout, and I've been a kept man. I like to travel, hike, swim, windsurf, and mountain bike but I haven't for years.
