I have ridden motorcycles off and on since I was eight years old. Starting out with Honda dirt bikes, I have owned and ridden all kinds of motorcycles including UJMs, cruisers, sport bikes, Triumphs and BMWs.
After serving in the US Navy I returned to NC and earned a bachelors degree in Political Science and Philosophy. I was an editorial cartoonist in college and did weekly cartoons for The Charlotte Observer for seven years.
I am now a marketing consultant for a firm based in Charlotte, NC where I focus on data analysis, Web development, information architecture and the occasional editorial cartoon with a business-related topics.
I am a passionate believer in veterans rights and political literacy in citizens. I have a great admiration for the U.S. Constitution and The Federalist Papers (particulalrly No. 84) which, in my opinion, is an essential companion reader for understanding the founding fathers' original intent.
For the past several years I have been evaluating opportunities for getting involved with the causes of preserving The Republic -- and those who have fought for it.
