Who I am

Good day, if you have made it to my user page I'd like to introduce myself. My name is John Morris, and I am glad to be here. I am a husband, and father of three kids. I work during the day as a Land Surveyor in southern California. And after hours and on the weekends I am a woodworker, specializing in custom furniture and more specifically chair building.

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.

Rapid Thoughts

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.
