Pooua is the pseudonym of Richard Alexander (b. 30 May 1966 - d. ?). He is a male U.S. citizen of primarily European descent. His ancestors arrived in North America more than 200 years ago from Germany and Scotland (he may also be part Mohawk Indian). Although his ancestors tended to settle in an area for decades, even a century or longer, he has lived in many areas across the NorthWestern Earth Quadrant. His Dad is a retired U.S. Navy Aircraft Structural Mechanic, and his Mom is a teacher.
Born in California, Mr. Alexander's family moved after two years to Michigan, then on to Guam, Virginia, Hawaii, Tennessee, Arizona and New Mexico. Mr. Alexander graduated from Rio Grande High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1984, then went active duty in the U.S. Navy, where he became a Machinist Mate. Following his naval service, he returned to Albuquerque, where he earned an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) Degree in Laser Electro-Optic Technology (LEOT) from Albuquerque Technical-Vocational Institute (T-VI) in 1992. He moved to Texas in 1994, where he currently resides. He earned an Associate of Science (AS) Degree in Computer Science and an AAS in Computer Systems/Information Systems from Collin College in 2013, graduating cum laude.
Mr. Alexander has contributed thousands of posts to scores of forums on the Internet since 1996, mostly under the Pooua pseudonym. He has also written a theological paper investigating a doctrine advocated by a large segment of his childhood religious denomination, the theory that blood conveys spiritual properties. Prior to his appearance on the Internet, Mr. Alexander made his opinions public via several hundred letters to the editors of several newspapers and radio talk shows.
