About The CEO

Maurice Skillern


Maurice Skillern, was born in Houston, Texas in 1966.  He spent most of his early life playing basketball and learning of the world through the sometimes harsh experiences of living in his neighborhood (Houston "Acres Homes", Texas).  After he graduated high school neither he nor his family had the financial means to send him to college so he then made a decision to better himself no matter what the sacrifice. He soon went active duty into the United States Army where he has spent most of his adult life, serving on both active duty and in the reserve components.  He has, in the years since joining the military been activated and served willingly in three conflicts (Desert Shield/Storm, Joint Endeavor (Germany), Iraq Freedom (Baghdad, Iraq)). He has also served on both sides of the Army houses, initially as an enlisted soldier (where he reached the rank of Sergeant First Class (E7)) and presently as an Officer. He earned his Bachelors of Science from the University of Nebraska where he also earned his Masters in Physician Assistant Studies. He now works as a Physician Assistant openly aiding all within his scope of practice.

Always a visionary, a dreamer, he set out and began writing his first book of poetic-philosophy in 1990, with a piece from it being published in the anthology The Space Between 1994.  He continued writing, exploring different thoughts, ideas and forms of technology to include the concepts and realization of his current book of poetic verse and philosophical expression "Messages".  His book is now available at most bookstores and  autographed copies are available through this web site.

Maurice Skillern, established the company Baseline International with the  focused intent to discover and make available the works of talented individuals. His first book "Messages" was published by Cedar Hill Publishing in conjunction with Baseline International and it has proven to be a successful  collaboration. In the end, Maurice will focus on  continuing to be a positive force in this society and establishing himself and Baseline International as an integral part of the entertainment community.
