Hi! I moved to Austin, TX a long time ago from Hale'iwa, Hawai'i. "Badtz Maru" is my traveling partner. He is Hello Kitty's cousin. I sometimes call him "Tux," but Tux is also the quasi-official name of the Linux (my favorite OS) penguin. He is also known as the "bad penguin." I don't do any social media, so don't bother trying to email me on InstaTwit or poke my Facespace or anything like that.

Got back from Kona at the beginning of November.


My B.A. is in Asian Cultures and Languages/Japanese, with a minor in Korean, Chinese, and Indian (dot... not feather ). I also have a couple of other degrees that I don't talk about (wink, wink, nudge, nudge ). I am a linguist and a computer geek. My goal is to master at least eight languages.

Crap about my life...

I’ve done a lot of stuff. I mean a lot. Started playing bass guitar at 13. I joined the U.S. Navy (Active Duty), like, four months after high school to straighten my ass out. Call it desperation, but I loved the Navy. I was stationed at the Naval Academy (Annapolis, MD). After the Naval Academy, I went to air-traffic control school at Millington NAS in Memphis, Tennessee to become an air traffic controller.

In Austin I worked as an FM radio DJ for 10 years under five different names and for 13 different stations, including Austin's best rock-n-roll station 93.7 KLBJ.

I re-joined the Navy after 9/11; because 9/11 "royally" pissed me off, and I felt it was my duty to this great country of ours.

My current sitcha'ation…

I live with 5/6 of our children...


Ushi Neko MooKitty ("Prada")
Louis Vuitton MooKitty ("Louie")
Gucci McGreyson ("Gucci")
Gianni Versace McGreyson ("Versace")

Michael Kors McTabbycat ("Mikey")

Note: We gave our cats regal designer names because they are all shelter rescues and unwanted castaways, so we wanted to give them names that made them special.

My son, Ryan, and his wife both recently graduated and received their full M.D. degrees.

I love Asia (especially Japan and Korea), and I travel often to various countries.

I love other stuff, too: cats (I LOVE cats!), hard rock, and anything or anyone involved with the creation(s) of Monty Python, Absolutely Fabulous, the Office, and British humor in general. Oh yeah... and I'm a Trekkie and a total tech nerd.

Special thanks to my great friends in Austin, Japan, Korea, Poland, Australia, and England on my website who never fail to make me smile!
