I was born on a farm in South Carolina in the Spring of the year of Pearl Harbor; and educated in a small rural public school system, a small liberal arts men’s college, and the graduate school of a large state university a day south of the farm. I have been a farmer-cowboy, a breeder of pigs, and a brewer of beer – a business analyst and an introvert. I hold reverence for the art of memory, which, I unfortunately lack. My remedy is to write about the fallacies of memory.

I helped to pioneer computer networks in K-12 public school districts in the mid 1980s and after 2000 worked to win funding for telecommunications and data network connections in rural public school districts.

A lifelong reader and writer, I am writing a memoir of generations of my people and how they cared for each other in the low country of South Carolina. My favorite writers are William Faulkner, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez; and/or Ian Frazier and William Least Heat-Moon. I write about Earth, Community, Family, and Food at and can be contacted by email at
