Who is Scott E. Pond?

As one of you fellow human-beings (or at least as someone who is disguised as a fellow human-being, mu-ah-ha-ha-ha-ha!), I’m pretty much just like you… only better and improved.

Some things you may be interested in knowing about me…

I was born early in the groovy 70′s…

I wear glasses…

I am the father of two wonderful children (Logan and Rachael)…

I am pessimistically optimistic (or is that optimistically pessimistic?) about life and everything in it, with a touch of nostalgic lightheartedness thrown in to boot…

I have a distinguished hairline, which I currently “enhance” by chopping off all that pesky, troublesome hair and taking it down to the smooth scalp… oooh, shiny!…

By genetic heritage, I have more in common with a mutt than a pure-bred… I am about 1/8th Native American, Deutch, Irish, English, with a little of everything else sprinkled throughout… plus 100% man, baby!…

I live and work in New England in the U S of A… but my heart is in Luna City… or maybe Tertius and Boondock… and am equally at home on the Sorcerer’s Isle, Barsoom, and Vulcan…

By profession, I am a technical instructor and curriculum developer… by passion I am a cad (Creative and Artistic Designer)…

I’ve worked in, and have experienced, a variety of professions and roles: industrial janitor at an iron foundry, manual laborer, newspaper stacker, foundry technician and mold-press operator, landscaping artist, lover, fighter, naval nuclear-trained janitor, naval reactor operator, supervisor and manager of individuals and groups, anal-retentive perfectionist, world traveller (US, Singapore, Hong Kong, Jebel Ali in the United Arab Emirates, Ireland, Germany, and Australia, to drop some names), technical instructor and writer, and creative consultant, just to name a few…

What I write here is my own opinion, so don’t blame anyone else, such as my parents, school system, employers, or mind-controlling aliens…

Give me beef, chicken, pasta, and dairy products and I’m a happy man…

I’ll drink just about anything… just make sure I don’t overindulge, please!…

Escaping into a good book is not just a hobby… it’s my way of life… read any good ones lately?…

Creatively, I am unfettered: I enjoy pencil drawing, product design, digital photography, sculpting, inks, paints, custom figure design, custom bookbinding, and RPG design, but these just scratch the surface…

It’s not that I’m always right, it’s just that I’m so rarely wrong… either way, it’s a problem that I’ve learned to deal with…

I often do not have any time to do the things I want to do, but I always make time to do the things I say I will…
