Well progress on Lou Zocchi's 3rd Edition of Star Fleet Battle Manual is slowly happening. I've gotten a lot done on the extras for the game; ship compass cards, markers like the new plasma bolt and nuclear devices, and the Tholian webbing template. The updating of the rules is going well also - lots of work on the alien races, especially the Romulans. The ship record sheets are what I am most happy with. With all the years of playing, feed back from players at conventions, and Lou's latest inputs, I think they are almost finished.
I am currently a retired, by choice, stay-at-home dad. My daughter, Maggie Reitz-Wells, has graduated from college and is married and working at St. John's College in Santa Fe, so my job is done. My education includes degrees in astronomy, physics and education. In the past I have been a high school science teacher, woodworker, game store owner/operator, worked at a real hardware store, summer camp counselor/director and even a US2 volunteer.
Right now I keep the home fires burning (literally), design games, and free-lance writing.
