I left Rio Linda for college at Purdue University and midwest culture shock, I received my degree and got back to the west 4 years later as a grad student in Entomology at Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon. I stayed there from 75 till 80, I started learning to play the fiddle.

Love Life

yes I do.

I finally found someone crazy enough to marry me and crazy enough for me to marry last year.


I've been involved in audio, electronics and radio engineering since '80. Been Chief Engineer at several stations here in Portland in the past 20 years. Have moved on in the last two years to consulting and project work, building transmission sites, studios, engineering and doing post work on TV productions, etc...


life, music, dancing

been playing the fiddle since about '76, I've played in a few bands since then for dances and parties.


I've lived in Portland, Oregon since 1980 and love it. Now I live on a houseboat with my new wife. We host several large parties each year at a shabby deconsecrated church I bought in 1998 to serve as workshop and dance hall.
