Noteworthy accomplishments include membership on an NASA mission science team and completion of an FEMA Hazard Mitigation plan. This plan covers hundreds of miles of the Texas-Mexico border. He worked to train Texas Military Force personnel in the use of geo-spatial technology to support disaster response. Collapse World: Recovery is his first attempt to enter the world of literature.
