Meadow Vista, CA USA – An almost a town in the Sierra foothills
Buckaroo Banzai is the most succinct description of my background. Why Buckaroo Banzai? Dr. Buckaroo Banzai (The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, a 1984 American Science Fiction Film) was a physicist, neurosurgeon, test pilot and rock musician. Okay, there are differences. My degree is a Ph.D. in Nuclear Chemistry with a thesis on Experimental and Theoretical Nuclear Physics. I am not a neurosurgeon, a test pilot, and I am not a rock musician. Offered as a close second, I am a trained concert organist, skilled in corporate governance, serve on the board of a water district as an elected public official, and my day job is in the field of Enterprise Architecture. Regarding all those folks with the name John? In my current role I am working with the state of California to help oversee the overhaul of the largest Medicaid processing system in the U.S. – maybe the new system will discover it was not only Grover’s Mill, New Jersey that was visited by the Red Lectroids. To unwind, I do things like add new ranks of pipes to my pipe organ; build a new switching system for the pipe organ; serenade the coyotes and deer here in the Sierra foothills with sounds of Bach, Guilmont, Vierne, Jongen and Sowerby; and then there is that nuclear hot dog maker that I am building.
