What is a "Milliron X"?
It's a cattle brand, of course! My cattle brand!
The milliron is the bar with a bend in the middle. It does not represent anything physical or textual per se, and is therefore a rather unique element in cattle brands. Millirons are difficult to modify into another brand, and provide a guarantee of authentic ownership.
X is the letter of mystery and mystique. For nerds, it's the unknown in any algebra problem. Ranchers and cowboys will associate it with big names like the "Bar X" and the "Double X." In either case, it lends itself to a sense of withholding, prestige, and power.
Together, these two symbols represent the qualities I strive for in each of my works: authenticity, originality, power, depth, and prestige.

I've got a soft spot for Brown Swiss dairy cows (just in case you couldn't tell by the pictures), and am sometimes called "one of those crazy, Wyoming dairy cow people." I love anything to do with cattle or technology, but especially anything to do with both of them.

Academic Publications and Presentations
I have spent too long in school and not enough time in the middle of nowhere – Baxter Black, DVM During my time in academia, I have amassed a few notable accomplishments.

Several of these articles are also available on my Google Scholar page, but this is the complete list. Read more »

The culmination of all art forms is that of film. A good film must have the plot and language of a good novel, characters as bold and stunning as sculpture, a rhythm as driving and delicate as poetry, frame compositions more stellar that those of photography, and music that speaks to the souls of both the characters on screen and the viewers off.
