Born in Chicago in the mid 60's, EclecticHoosier spent most of his childhood exploring the south side of the city and suburbs in that long-forgotten time before cellphones or internet; a time when a child could walk the neighborhood without fear of being abducted, or ride a bike without a helmet. He attended private schools through high school, then joined the work force, gaining experience in a number of fields including management, security, firefighting, EMS, emergency rescue, quality control, data entry, computer support, and general manufacturing. Twice divorced, he currently lives in a Chicago suburb with his girlfriend and two spoiled cats. He enjoys reading, photography, writing, music, traveling, competition shooting and coffee. He enjoys writing portable audio and technology reviews and short stories, and has several novels in progress.
