NNSA Technical Facilitation
I sometimes facilitate technical meetings and promote process improvment efforts for the Department of Energy (DOE) community. Non-local unusual clients have been: Stanford Linear Accelerator, Navajo Nation, NNSA Headquarters, and Atominform in Moscow, Russia. These efforts are coordinated through Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for multiple facility meetings within the DOE/NNSA community. - See: Technical Facilitation Services.

Apologetics and Theology
My active Christian walk began during the Jesus Revolution of the early 70's, which led to being a pulpit preacher for a year in Socorro, a year as the rural Socorro county jail chaplain, helping start a Christian coffeehouse on the New Mexico Tech campus, and playing the role of Jesus in amateur skits.
Since 1977, I developed adult Bible studies for the local United Methodist, Assembly of God, and Southern Baptist congregations. I was the Secretary for the Bible Study Groups at LLNL from 1979 to 2006. Since 2004, I have helped lead the AWANA high school program for students from several local churches. While my journey transcends typical boundaries, my focus is on core traditional faith. As John Wesley said, “If your heart is as my heart, lend me your hand.”
This site includes some of my minor theological papers that show why a reasonable person would focus on Jesus Christ, with an emphasis on historicity and reliability. It inlcudes some of my morals papers showing how people of traditional Judeo-Christian faith can address key morals issues.
Both sets of papers have influences from many theologically traditional (more so than less so) apologists who defend traditional Judeo-Christian faith. Apologist logic has helped many honest skeptics.
