I was born in SLC. My father was a jack Mormon, but my mother was a Congregationalist. I was never impresssed with religion and when I started studying philosophy I found out why. I attended Westminster college and the university of Utah and studied psychology, sociology, anthropology and philosophy. I joined the navy at 27 and spent twenty years working as a power tech. In the process I finished 2 degrees in math and philosophy. I retired in 2008 and became a secondary math teacher.
I moved to TX from California to be with my daughter. My wife, unstable at best, died in 2014. I’m a single dad of a beautiful blonde 11 year old girl. She’s my main focus.

Gatovicolo comments on Mar 26, 2018:
Why do they want to text? It’s probably due to them wanting to edit their responses.
