I am an over-educated American of Northern European origin: three-quarters British and one-quarter Swedish. Ultimately, 100% Viking.
For further personal background, see this page.
I have a Master of Science degree in Business Administration (IT/Computer Science), a Bachelor of Arts Degree in German and Music, and extensive experience, of over three decades, as developer, designer, project manager and executive within the software industry.
I have decided to make use of my skills, experience and training to express my insights into Business, the English language and other topics, in order to provide explanations to and for the general Public of the conditions in which we now find ourselves, and to provide a voice to those whose situation denies them free expression. To this must be added my continuing drive to provide a Musical voice for the enjoyment of others.
Having witnessed personally how Communism, coupled with the cult of personality, affects society and commerce (particularly within Romania—Trăiască România liberă!), I possess an overview of economic, government and social systems that few Americans have had the opportunity to experience or witness at close range.
On this site you will find information about my latest two books, and further data on me and what I have been doing over the past couple of years. A personal blog, and the capacity for comments, will be added to this site shortly.
The photos of Greece at the top of the page are my own work, taken in 2009: I retain all rights to those images. (Yes, the sky was that blue! The Greek government and people have been doing a great job tackling Athen's urban pollution: the sky was “Austin blue” .)
The module displaying the photos is Vinaora Cu3er Slideshow.
