I’m a US Navy veteran (1973-1979) and was stationed on NAS North Island, in San Diego California. My squadron VS-38 was deployed on the USS Kitty Hawk. I worked for almost twenty years at Hewlett Packard / Agilent in Santa Rosa, California, where I specialized in UNIX systems administration. For twelve years I owned and operated an antique shop. Now I work at a small veteran owned company servicing espresso and coffee beverage machines. In my spare time when I’m not raytracing I volunteer as the POV-Ray Documentation Coordinator and help maintain the POV-Wiki.
