I was born in the once booming metropolis of Reedsport, OR in 1977. I remember when there were once more than 5 people in the local supermarket at a time - and not just the employees! I went to school, did all the usual stuff, and graduated in 1995. Immediately jumped into community college, where I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with myself. Worked for several years as production director at the local radio station, then one day as I finished delivering sandwiches to my fellow employees and to the computer that stole my job a few weeks prior, I just got fed up with the whole deal.

Got an itchin' to see the world. Drove all the way to Washington's Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort(in Olympic Nat'l Park) and made beds for the big bucks. It was great - saw Seattle, Bremerton, the whole tourist thing. Almost went to Canada too. Took lots of pictures.

Came back that fall and started college at Southern Oregon University. It was a rough road there for a while. After trying out almost every major they offer, I finally settled on Journalism.  I should graduate this June with a B.S. I hope to graduate and not look back.

I like what I'm doing, and that's important.  I don't know If I'd ever want to continue working in radio - it's changed so much even from a few years ago.  But I'm sure I'll decide on something...

 

Many, many things to do...A little about my hobbies.

The center of the known universe: Reedsport, OR

Making the big bucks...

I'm in my second season now at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, where I'm an usher.   This makes me very happy. I'll tell you why...

Previously, I worked my way through several terms of college as a janitor.   Let's just say that I am glad to leave that behind.  When you're scrapin' turds off the walls at 3 in the morning for an unappreciative jerk of a boss who thinks he's your dad, something goes off in the back of your head that says, "this ain't for me."  Oh, the stories I could tell...

 

More coming soon...
