I was born on the island of Trinidad more years ago than I like to admit. My ancestral families had all been in the West Indies for several generations, having emigrated to seek their fortune in the New World. After Great Britain granted most of its colonies independence, many of them drifted towards socialism, resulting in widespread economic malaise. Trinidad was no exception, and my family ended up migrating once again. This time to the United States.

I went through my adolescent years in Miami, then attended college in New Orleans. My years in "The Big Easy" proved to be a pivotal time in my life. It was there that I earned a Bachelors Degree in Civil Engineering, met my future wife, and gained a social education second to none, if you catch my drift.

I currently live in a suburb of Atlanta,and work as a manager in the construction industry. My wife and I have three wonderful children and a house that takes up way too much of my free time doing maintenance and improvements.

As for my world view, I would categorize myself as a classic liberal (small 'l') - in my eyes, the less government, the better.
