An American board member from Oklahoma. He is a high school teacher by day, and has shown interests in several areas of history, including early 20th century American and European history, alternate colonization and development of the United States/North America, and that AH.commer favourite, airships. His nickname on the board is a dead giveaway about the latter, since it references Hugo Eckener.
He demonstrated the aforementioned interest in airships in his first two timelines published on AH.com :
Both deal with different historical developments in the rigid airship industry and how the changes in it also affect the wider world, its politics, economy and culture. Several historical personalities appear, including ones immortalized by the zeppelin-building industry (yes, including the real Eckener and others).
In addition, he has a few more timelines that branch out into other areas, mostly involving US history in some form:
Eckener also runs his own AH-themed blog, called The Weekly Chrononaut. Check it out. Of particular note on the blog is Eckener's Silent Night series, which chronicles a world where the Christmas Truce of 1914 that leads not only to the end of World War I, but also to a broader movement for peace across the globe.
