Recent Activity  -


Emergency Preparedness / Industrial Security consultant. Currently working at a US Nuclear plant on Drill & Exercise development, conduct and evaluation. Provide expertise on EP plans, processes and procedures. Born and raised in Rugby, North Dakota - the Geographical Center of North America - surrounded by Minuteman III silos and B-52 bombers. Other than normal farming country experiences, didn't do much of anything. Wandered (many times drunkenly) my way through college for a year and a half, before I realized I didn't know who, what, where I was. Joined the Navy to get as far away from North Dakota as possible (worked!).
