My Bio

Greetings, Mortals to my humble page.


Who am I

I'm a successful conservative Libertarian, egoist millionaire, and aloof recluse living in the City of Bozeman in the south-east hills 5 minutes from Downtown. My wife and I went from $10K in pocket to where we are now in 10yrs, God bless the American Dream!


Modern Nobleman

I'm a real life petty Nobleman, I'm a seated manorial Laird in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and my wife is a Lady of the same place. I'm a Lord of England, non sitting, and minor Knight from Alconbury manor and most interesting a Baron of Sealand, with deeded barony. These are REAL minor noble titles, with admitting Sealand is not recognized by many nations and has a notorious reputation I think it's fun.

I also own an registered acre of the Moon, so as you walk the night, let my radiant light bathe your skin and illuminate your path.


Religion and Culture

I'm a pious Traditional Catholic artist (and horror artist) of German/Irish decent with a love for Pre Vatican II Catholicism and the many eastern orthodox sects as well. My interest in Christianity is through a mostly medieval lens, and I practice both traditional Catholic mysticism with some THAVMA and medieval to renaissance Christian Theurgy.


The good Prior is an ordained Minister in the AMM and the ULC as well as been nominated for Sainthood as well with the ULC (Universal Life Church). He has been suggested as the Patron Saint of Independent sailors and would be sailors in spirit for the Principality of Sealand.


Family

I've been with my amazing wife since 89. I'm a diabetic, and my mood moves with my blood sugar. We don't attend church, but maintain a home chapel.


We have no children, as we both are too selfish and codependent with each-other that we realized a child would just be a distraction to us. We dealt with children as children, why deal with them now?


We are madly in love and best friends and just prefer the company of each-other.


My wife and I own our own company and own a few of pieces of property in Bozeman where we live. Our store can be found on Main Street and we live a humble yet opulent life in our dream house, Arkham Mansion.


Work and Play

I'm an artist and a gamer and look to soon publish some RPG supplements (Mostly based on Lovecraft under my side company Arkham Antiquities). Currently we are concentrating on getting our Hyborian Collection, of functional prop weapons, and gear from our home foundry and smithy up. Health issues though though keep complicating things.


I make a very good living running an unconnected corporation so making a profit in the publishing/propmaking industry is unimportant, it's more of a labor of love than anything else. I expect to make money....but profits are just gravy to my primary income.

That was of course before Covid and the collapsing economy of 2021


What is Arkham Antiquities

It will be a publisher of Lovecraftian RPG weapons, props, adventures and supplements for ANY game based on H.P. Lovecrafts writing and works in common as well as those of R.E. Howard.


A prop house and art house of Cthuliana and esoteric art.


Much much more...


Style

I'm developed my own style I'll get a drawing to where I basically want, make copies and experiment adding on so as not to destroy my progress, scanning and re-scanning as I add layers. It adds depth and eases my nerves.


I see art as a way of life, I sculpt and carve stone,plaster,clay,wood and whatever can be worked. I draw and paint. Most of my painting is using medieval methods with egg tempera paints that I make.


I carve soapstone molds to cast pewter jewelry, buckles, pilgrims badges and other medieval and RPG themed items. I work bone from dinosaur to human, and ivory from narwhal to mammoth.


I'm a carpenter and woodworker, I make furniture and can pretty much build anything given the time. That said I'd rather hire others as it gives me more time to spend with the wife.


Other

I own a large collection of Firearms, from Broomhandled Mauser to Tommygun to AK47 to AR15s and an AR10. I collect militaria, antique books and anything related to Call of Cthulhu or R.E. Howard.


I hate noise, and thus the suburbs as many in the suburbs show little class in controlling barking dogs, or worse their yelling idiotic children. (Parasites who only raise property taxes by spawning more, lol) .


I hate the suburbs, the culture or lack of it as it debases the soul and brings a crudeness to my life. This is why I moved from the Suburbs to the Hills in true roman use of the word.


Other men can be stacked as cord wood in the city or suburbs drowning in the mire of clamor, a septic tank containing the din of the masses...but I'm an Artist and need spacious and broad vistas. When I need the toile...city it's just 5 minutes away. With zero backups.

Sainthood Some may know I'm an Ordained Minister (With the AMM and the Universal Life Church) and I've recently been nominated for Sainthood by the ULC. (I'll know by the end of the year. Permanently recorded in the church registry.) I guess I'll make a Icon to myself...a saint's self portrait. Nice. (I'm a pious independent traditional/orthodox catholic or Sedevacantist Catholic with some eastern orthodox leanings, some heretical views and a sense of humor.I know titles are silly, and folks have bought them from Prince Charles since the 90s, and inexpensive real titles are out there.) You can even get them free by writing a nice letter or two. The Principality of Sealand I've recently been granted land and title from Prince Michael, being elevated to a seated Baron from the Principality of Sealand, the worlds smallest micronation. I am the Baron von Meer, So I'll need a peers robe and 6 balled Barons coronet as these are things I can leave to my heirs as most of these titles can

Unholy Taxidermy Well i'm working on a few Prop projects, one is a Shoggoth specimen, living and moving. While the others are "wet" specimens using resin instead of liquids. The Shoggoth I'm hoping to have a large black mass wiggle and move, stretching up tendrils to "it's food" held outside the glass jar while eyes extend and withdraw within the mass. Just as Lovecraft described with an iridescent black color if possible and slightly glowing eyes. All of this will work without electricity using magnetism, chemistry, sculpting and some springwork to function. The Wet Specimens This will be a critters in a jar using clear resin. Not much more to add. Ghoul Teeth These need some presentation and backstory. Mounted Killer Emu From an unknownd island off the mysterious Australian seas comes this man eating bird, or at least it's mounted head. For in 1903 the team fled the island due to the fierce pygmy headhunters or Kuo-kuo (cho-cho) as they called themselves. It needs more

Don't neglect your health. I've learned a lot about men's health recovering the last year from a infection, surgery and malnutrition. I'm at 195lbs, and want to get back to 180lbs...but my hairs darker and thicker now that my nutrition's fixed. My testosterone levels are 740, in the top 10% so I'm feeling on top of the world and will be back into the 800-900's once my chest fully heals. Again this is why men need to be married, I'd be dead if not for my wife..she got me back to where I am now. I could not have recovered on my own. After a year going to a wound clinic you learn Testosterone is the most important element in men's health. High testosterone improves mood, energy levels, brain function,performance, muscle mass, and is the most critical thing you can do to prevent aging. I got as low as 490 when I was sick and it was still higher than most men, especially at my age. Still I stopped doing any art then, so it must have affected something. Don't forget stuff.. Next is
