I am married now for 23 + years: we have two great daughters that are doing great in college. Our oldest is working on her Masters Degree in Counseling and wants to work with returning Veterans from over seas
Our other daughter is in her second year in Minneapolsis Minnesota and is pursing a career in Engineering.
I am retired from the Army in the fall of 2004., after 24 years spending all the time enlisted.
It is not for everyone: My career was nothing special and I enjoyed the things that I did. I feel that I helped and touched namy lives while being a Leadership Insturctor for 10 years.
After I retired it wsa found through a series of test and so on that I have an medical Condition called " Chiari Malformation 1" at the present time my herniation is 3 cm; I am yet to have surgery.
In easy terms either my brain is either to big or my skull is to small as a result my mid brain is slowly being forced onto my spine.
As a result it blocks or slows down the spinal fluid flow to the brain which causes pressures to build up and gives constant headaches at all times, balance problems from time to time and a lot of other challenges we Chiarians deal with on a daily basis. I have created a T shirt here on my web site for awareness.
Currently for the last 4 years I am a EMD / Fire Dispatcher for the Fire Dept ;pcated on Offutt Air Force Base, Bellevue Nebraska.
As an artist I am always evolving into new things and experinces do to ourside factors that are going on in my life. I am currelntly in the process of starting to reach myself how to draw and paint Native American Scenes, Wolves, Buffallo and things in that jaundra...
I am a self taught artist and all the paintings that you see are mine and done in Acrylic paints and colored pencils.
