Walter first developed an interest in Japanese animation with the premiere of "Star Blazers" in 1979 on WTAF TV 29 in Philadelphia, after already succumbing to science fiction in general. He attempted to catch a movie version of this series at Philcon 1984, but missed it and instead was introduced to the amazing work of Hayao Miyazaki in "Lupin III Castle Cagliostro". Walter's education is in physics and after graduate school worked on trajectory server software for the Space Shuttle Mission Control Center in Houston, Texas. He is currently back in the Northeast working with orbital GPS satellite software. Walter's interest in anime and history have dovetailed in his recent anime DVD credit, co-authoring the "Hidden History" feature along with Philcon co-panelist Robert Fenelon, on the extremely popular "Axis Powers Hetalia" DVD from Funimation.
