This web page is a private project to examine, comment, and review data, culture, transportation, intelligence, knowledge, and how these concepts influence research and daily life. But I have other interests, which will be included in the blog.

  • I enjoy the “great ideas” and learning and discussions on music.
  • I have a hobby farm so you may see a few seeds on that topic!
  • I also study martial arts, so there may be articles about teaching, training, and other related items.

Finally, I am a PhD candidate at the University of Antwerp. I hope to spend more time posting academic materials over the next few months.

I have been told I am not a writer throughout my life, so what does a writer do? They write, regardless of the acceptance of the outcome, but the improvement of the craft. The goal is thus not to be anything more than a better writer than I was yesterday. I am not without thoughts, but good writing reflects good thinking. Unfortunately, this does not go the other way!

I am a storyteller by heart (which applies to most people from Louisiana). These are my stories.
