I live in Elgin, IL, a suburb of Chicago with my wife of over forty years.

I spent nearly ten years (nine years, ten months, eight days) in the Army. While on active duty in the Service, I competed nationally with a Division Rifle Team and was a member of a Post Skydiving Team. I've made 1400 Parachute jumps; over 1100 of the jumps were from over 12,000ft and 21 of those jumps were HALO jumps (HALO is a military acronym for High Altitude, Low Opening) meaning the aircraft is exited from over 20,000ft and the jumper freefalls to under 1,000ft before they deploy their chute.

Since leaving the service, I've been involved in the computer industry for nearly forty years doing everything from computer programming to Company President.

I have been an avid hunter and outdoorsman most of my life and enjoys the outdoors, especially when I'm in the woods or mountains. The idea for Bearkiller came to me while in the Wasatch Mountains in Utah.
