Who I am
I served in the U.S. Army where I was stationed for the majority of my service in the country of Panama. I met my wonderful wife there, and we married in 1991. Our home has a mix of Central and North American culture, of which we have passed on to our children as well.
During my day job I help build roads and bridges by surveying topographic features in the land and by determining and directing the location of super structures, roads and buildings.
I also run an online woodworking community forum, where we support our military veterans in both the US and Canada. We fund-raise for veterans organizations and at times we'll help a disabled veteran in need acquire the tools and supplies they need to keep woodworking.
In my after hours job (woodworking) I build custom furnishings for customers and for gallery and shows. See some of the work I perform below.
Why I am here
Good day, thank you for visiting my user page. Currently we are using TikiWiki for our woodworking community wiki and collaboration website.
Our main objective is to provide an environment where information is contributed, shared and gathered that is related to the woodworking world, arts, crafts, trades and industry.
We chose TikiWiki for this purpose.

I have been exploring different wiki software for the last year and a half. I have bounced around from wiki to wiki, leaving, coming back, then leaving again, then coming back again. One wiki software that I keep coming back to, because it is so compelling, is TikiWiki. I think I may have finally found a home.
