About Michael

Career- U.S. Marine Corps veteran, early 1980s, some hard knocks, good parents, training, taught a great deal about how our world, nation, government, works, and sometimes does not work so well.

Passion- I fix things. Cars, Computers, Communications, and give people, our nation, companies, solutions or advantages that are certain to be harmless, and sure to be unheard of. Decades pass, and the knack to see things others may not notice develops, the visible effect of seeing the support, guidance, methods, devices, used tends to strengthen my confidence. From the smallest mechanical detail, to the Big Bang itself, there is a chain of blind spots we (humanity) has, by drawing a line of sorts along these shared blind spots, for millennia, a final realization about people, our future, potentials, is developed. My passion is to relate to any person these insights, means, ways, to solve your problems. Then I disappear because oft times, no good deed goes unpunished, essentially. A stealth helper, maybe.

Education in my case is not as striking as the learning from a young age, seeing very bright, educated, persons with gaping blind spots, working in a mechanic shop, wrecking yard, it was startling to see many did not know a spark plug from an ear plug, a lug wrench from a pipe wrench. Military training methods agreed with me. Should you wish my help, my only request is help me back, with what you know.
