Profile Information

Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
SW Portland / Tigard / Beaverton
About Me:
I'm an author, computer consultant and freelance writer who has called the Pacific Northwest home for more than 30 years. I've published numerous articles on PC-related topics in both print and electronic magazines. My interest in underwater archaeology led me to begin a blog about mysterious ancient maritime cultures in the Caribbean at www. TheMegaBlog.com. And my interest in diving led me to start a web portal for divers called BajaDivers.com. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree with dual majors in Physics and Mathematics and I'm a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. Interests include computing, alternative history and scuba diving. When not writing, I can usually be found traveling Mexico and the Caribbean with my wife, Marty.
What do you love about Portland?
It's filled with creative talent of all types. Winters are USUALLY not too cold. It keeps a small city feel but has everything to offer. It's close to both the mountain and the beach, and just a three-hour drive from Seattle, from Bend and from Eugene.
My music:
Love jazz, blues and all types of Latin music, including some alternative rock.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
close-in downtown, maybe MacAdam Av and John's Landing or the Waterfront

"A feature article about SciFi author R.J. Archer was published today in The Portland Tribune. Hope you'll stop by, then read the fiction about real-life discoveries in the Bahamas and around the globe. Available in Kindle, Nook and paperback.
Author and explorer Dr. Greg Little says, "R.J. Archer's books may be more fact than fiction."
