A retired civil engineer, I love reading, writing, and underwater photography.


Background Information

I live in the metro Atlanta, Georgia area. I was born in Atlanta in 1946 after my father returned home from WWII. I’ve lived here all my life. After graduating with a degree in civil engineering from Georgia Tech, I worked for the Georgia DOT for 34 years, retiring in 2001. Since then, I have worked part-time for a consulting engineering firm. “Recollections: A Baby Boomer's Memories of the Fabulous Fifties” is my first book. I got the idea for the book a number of years ago when I overheard some of the younger people in the office talking about their favorite TV shows when they were kids. I kind of shocked them when I said that TV didn’t exist when I was a little kid. That was about ten years ago, and I got the idea that I could write a book about life in the 1950s.

Nevertheless, the idea languished until last year, when I read Bill Bryson’s The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, a humorous memoir based on his childhood experiences growing up in the 1950s and early 1960s. Bill did a marvelous job of describing how it was to be a kid in the United States during that period. I decided then to write my book, a light, easy read about the daily rituals of life during that period, especially from a kid’s viewpoint. The book is not a memoir, although it includes a few personal memories.

Birth Place
Atlanta, GA USA
Accomplishments

I have won a number of major photography competitions, both topside and underwater. My topside photography has been published in Parade Magazine. My underwater images have been published in National Geographic and Popular Photography.

Additional Information

“Recollections: A Baby Boomer's Memories of the Fabulous Fifties” I'm proud of the book, and it has received excellent reviews.
