I'm a retired project manager and Information Specialist for the state of Wisconsin, Department of Transportation. I helped maintain large databases of electronic documentation on mainframes and servers.
In the mid 80's I had the privilege of working at the Space Astronomy Laboratory, University of Wisconsin, Madison where I worked on a space shuttle mission known as Project ASTRO, specifically the Wisconsin Ultraviolet PhotoPolarimeter Experiment (WUPPE for short). WUPPE eventually flew on several shuttle missions in the 90s collecting ultraviolet readings not possible to collect from ground-based observatories.
I've produced art throughout all my life, and as such, am also a graphic artist. I specialize in astronomy, science fiction & fantasy, and new age themes.
My Wife Darlene P. Coltrain is a full-time artist specializing in lost wax cast jewelry, hand painted silk scarves and beadwork. She is well known in the Science Fiction community. Many individuals including professional writers have purchased her products.
