Born in Daytona Beach, Florida on April 18 1955. Raised by grandmother in both MacClenny and Jacksonville, Florida. Have one sister and a half-sister a niece and two nephews and only one child a son and eight grandchildren.
Graduated from Baker county high school in 1974 and thereafter joined the U.S Army where I worked as a armor crewman stationed in Germany and Columbus, Georgia from 1974 to 1977. After leaving the army I when to Atlanta, Georgia. where I attended technical school majoring in computer technology.
After graduation from technical school I worked for a year in North Carolina with a computer firm.
Disillusioned with the pay and personal issues I quit that job and when back to Florida where I landed a job with Computer Sciences Corporation at the Kennedy Space Center from 1979 to 1986 as a computer technician troubleshooting and repairing the ground launch computers for the space shuttle project.
While employed at the space center I became heavily involved in the use of marijuana during the latter years of my employment and that combined with other issues resulted in my losing that job in 1986.
In the latter half of that same year I was introduced to crack cocaine and subsequently became an active user until 1996.
Sentenced by a judge in Tampa Florida to enter a six months drug rehab program in that city I moved back to MacClenny, Florida after successfully completing that program. I have been clean and sober since that time.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems from Jones College Jacksonville, Florida. Another main project that I have ongoing is www.hiveaids.com a social networking Website dedicated to people who are HIV/AIDS positive.
I currently live in Jacksonville, Florida. My writing experience includes having short poems and articles published by the VA and four books published by amazon.com.
