About Me

Thanks for reading! I grew up in Wisconsin, lived in California for many years, moved back to Wisconsin, then recently moved to North Carolina where I am now. I am self-employed and spend most of my time researching military history and as a historical research consultant. I am working on a number of books. My first book was published in 2008 on the history of San Francisco's Treasure Island. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ For many years I was enlisted in the California Military Department, State Military Reserve. My last rank was SSG. The CSMR is a Joint Force Multiplier and serves alongside the California Army National Guard within the California Military Department as defined by the California Military and Veterans code. Both components serve at the command of the Adjutant General of the State of California through the direction of the Governor. In 2010 I was selected Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year for the California State Military Reserve. In my SSG role I worked in Ops at the Bde level on mobilization training and on Homeland Security and Defense Support of Civil Authority missions. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I have a large collection of about 1000 board wargames (boxed and magazine/folio) and an extensive collection of miniatures. My main scale is 15mm though I have French & Indian War and scifi in 28mm. My main ares of interest are the AWI, ACW, War of 1812, and early American Indian Wars. I am also interested in Ancient Roman, WWI Alpine front, WWII North Africa, WWII Normandy, WWII B29 Campaign in the Pacific, and jet combat from 1950-1970.
