About BloodSpite:

I’m a nearly 40 year old doctoral student with a Masters degree in project management from Missouri State University. If all goes well I will finish my Doctorate of Business Administration at the end of 2016.

I’m  a former a telecommunications installer. I traveled the world setting up cellular networks for cellular carriers such as Verizon, Crickett and AT&T. I’m currently an IT project manager specializing in nationwide infrastructure and IT project implementations for a Fortune 500 retail company. I’m also an active volunteer in my local community, as well as being an extreme weather buff and sometimes storm chaser.

I served in the US Army Reserves and volunteered for Active Duty after a year, serving almost 10 years combined. I was medically discharged. I did serve overseas. I’m the fourth generation of military in my family. My father made headlines in the 1980’s and early 90’s testifying on medical malpractice by the US Navy to  Senate subcommittee hearings.

I have been an IT Project Manager, Police Officer, Police Dispatcher, IBM Hardware Support Tech, Packard Bell Field Tech and Santa Claus in Buffalo, NY because I was broke one year. You do the work you need not the work you choose.

Maine born, Georgia raised, Irish family, I am an  old fashioned, southern democrat ne conservative, with some admittedly strange ideas about the world.  I have been blogging since 1995, previously at our sister site Techography. I interviewed once at Basils Blog, eons ago.

I’m in to small town rodeo’s, living off grid, craft beers, Laphroaig scotch, Green Spot whiskey, pipe tobacco and cigars of a multitude of types.

In short, like everyone else, I’m unique, have my own point of view and perspective is skewed by my experiences. I try to keep an open mind, but I am honest enough to say I find it difficult. I welcome debate, however only in a civil and courteous manner.

    Hi. [redacted],
    I have read your Bio 5 times because I really enjoyed your live experiences. I like this phrase” Because I was broke for one year, anything goes” for living. Good Job!. Don’t be surprised that, I now know who you are, or Joseph true colors. Good job! I am so touched with your live experiences. I can touch your heart with my live experiences but, Joseph, yours is exceptional. Therefore, I salute Sir.

    Kind Regards,

    Sam Oppong

    • Good to see you here Sam! I hope the Doctoral references have been useful so far! I’ll be adding more as we progress. I guess I should add last revised date for folks who wander in.
      Take put too much stock in my bio….they way I see it we are all just travelers in the world either physically or socially. We can learn of others cultures or we can cocoon ourselves from them. I prefer the former and I like to see what the world has to offer :)

      Socially however I’m a neophyte.

    I’m sorry to bother you but I saw your website and wanted to contact you. Do you collect cigar and tobacco labels. I’m helping a friend sell labels from his collection and he has some really nice tobacco caddy labels and some more commons cigar labels. >

    Please let me know your interest and I can send pics. Or I would greatly appreciate your help pointing me to some collectors I should reach out to.

    Thanks
    Chris
