About admin

Dr J is an athlete, former professor (nuclear engineering at the U of OK), former USA Director of the Triathlon Federation, and winner of 6 races (overall, not just age group) after the age of 40 (you know, when body parts start to fall off!) including the Double Ironman, The Ultraman, and the Ironbutt. He has coauthored 2 books on energy, Energy Alternatives and Our Energy Future. He has written for Trail Runner magazine for several years. Typing while enjoying the canyon views and nature sounds (including the screaming mountain lion!) in an off-the-grid, energy efficient house (passive solar with solar electric) - lovingly and laboriously built by yours truly.


I’ve been writing on many different subjects for many years. Eventually I will upload all my previous and new writings to this web site.  The material varies;  technical papers, fitness / training articles, political commentary, Dr. J’s rants and raves, automotive, (rather elementary) poetry, short stories, essays, travel blogs, and excerpts from books that I’m writing.  A little bit of everything.  If you find something you like, please send me an email.
