I was born in Anaheim, CA, but since 1971, when I was about 7 years old, I've been on the east coast on the United States in the New England area, in the state of Connecticut.
I work as a main frame computer operator and host my own local TV show. I have a strong interest in science fiction and anything having to do with outer space. My favorite film is 2001: A Space Oddessey.
Soon after running the SETI@Home program, I started my own group. Its name is "Radio Free SETI". Its a spin on the voice of the resistance during WW2 who where doing their best to broadcast from behind enemy lines and tell people what was going on. I couldn't believe that the group name wasn't already taken.
Hobbies? TV production, reptiles (I have a hognose snake), reading science fiction and american history, science fiction movies and TV, SETI@Home, computers, cycling, American history, travel and much more!
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I think that there has to be intelligent life out there somewhere. With so many galxies, stars and extra-solar planets being discovered, I find it hard to imagine that the miracle of LIFE could have only happened here.
For me the question of "Are we alone?" is the question for all time. I do not believe the answer will ever be "IF" we will answer this question as the WHEN and what form this other life might be. Will they be similar to us or not? Will they be benevolent or not? This has been a staple for the science fiction writer for decades, going all the way back to H.G. Wells classic "The War of the Worlds."
