As a member of the Raven Crew for more than 2 years now, I have enjoyed being a part of the crew and helping the site grow and expand to the refit the old girl has gone through recently.
I have like most of us have been sci-fi and fantasy fans for most of my life, I grew up on the old Battlestar Galatica, Buck Rogers and was pretty scared of the Visitors from the Original V series. I am an avid fan of BSG, Star Wars, Star Trek and any other geeky thing out there save for the Zombie shows, I am not a fan of the Zombie stuff.
Once I became an adult I did join up with the Military and was Army Intelligence and Communications for 8 years. Once I got out I worked at various jobs and found none of them challenging or exciting. Eventually I found myself unemployed and not able to find the kind of work that I wanted to get into so I decided to go back to College and get my degrees. I am proud to say that I have completed the first part of my 3 part plan by earning my Associate's Degree in Criminal Justice. I plan to continue my education path with the Bachelor's Degree and then attend Law School to get my Juris Doctorate.
As Chief Engineer I have an open door policy, If you have a suggestion on how to make things better. Email me and I will do my best to see if it works if it does then I will put it into play.
Being assigned to the JAG corps is a dream job of mine. I have been a student of the law for years now and looking to help members understand the laws that govern not only the Battlestar that they serve but to the Group and Life in General.
