Aloha mai kākou! My writing is my escape and solace, imagining different worlds in which people interact with the speculative kernels from our latest discoveries in science and advancements in technology.
I became hooked on science after Neil Armstrong took an unusual stroll one Sunday morning in July, 1969. As a boy, I devoured all types of science fiction novels from Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and Frank Herbert. While serving as a Nuclear Engineer of various U.S. submarines, my reading turned to the hard SciFi genre written by the likes of Kim Stanley Robinson and Ben Bova. After leaving the Navy, I went back to school and earned two master's degrees, one at Bryant University in Rhode Island and another at Swinburne University in Australia, I spent the next couple decades teaching college physics and astronomy. While a flight instructor, I published a column on flying in Hawaii in PilotMag, an aviation enthusiast’s magazine. My debut novel, Mauna Kea Rising, came out in 2019.
