Brief Highlights of My Life


I grew up in the city of La Puente, California. My father died when I was a child, and we lived in relative poverty. My mother was less than sane, and I experienced abuse, racism, and isolation at her hands and in the world at large..

Young Adult

I graduated from high school early, and attended college intermittently. I took a number of dead-end jobs until I met my future wife. I joined the United States Air Force, and got married.


I was trained as a Cryptolinguist Specialist and worked at the National Security Agency at Ft. Meade, MD. I was released a from active duty few months early to serve three years of reserve duty with the California Air National Guard.


I was initially unaware that what I was experiencing was symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and I was also unaware that my wife was showing severe symptoms of Bipolar Disorder and Dissociative Identity Disorder.

Much of My Life was lost to Fate

“I am shaped by the world around me in the same way that I shape the world around me. It is an interaction that was initiated long before I was born and which will continue long after I die.” – JP Colin
