Patton is a computer and gaming geek who has become a foodie against his will, thanks to the efforts of his wife.

When he’s not playing games, he likes spoiling the dogs, teasing his wife, and has recently discovered that he actually likes hiking, which he swore would never happen after he left the Army. A voracious reader, he’s never far from a book in either paper or electronic format. A word of warning.

Touch his coffee, and it will be at your peril.

For the purposes of Nerds and Nomsense, Patton is the duly appointed Grammar-Nazi, or Managing Copy Editor.

Favorite Motto: “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” – Inigo Montoya
