Mr. Gardner has enjoyed a colorful and varied career.After majoring in electrical engineering at the University of Arizona, he joined the Navy and served with the UDT (forerunner of the Seals).
Upon discharge, he entered into broadcasting and, as he puts it, for the next 17 years the only position he didn’t hold was as a station owner.
He has taught physics, computer programming and design, and digital electronics at several universities.“I love teaching and I enter academia at least once every ten years in order to maintain an appreciation for the ‘real world’ outside.”
He has held positions as a computer programmer, designer, systems engineer, and systems administrator as well as owning or collaborating in several computer-consulting companies as well as an advertising and public relations firm.
Mr. Gardner has lived and worked in almost all of the lower 48 States as well as South Africa and Israel.He learned the Russian language in self-defense while working with several Russian ex-patriots in New Jersey that would make jokes in their language about his resemblance to the late Vladimir Lenin.Mr. Gardner currently lives and writes in Sedona, Arizona.
