Bio 

I have several years as a projectionist all films except 70mm. I was a theatre sound engineer in Colorado in the late 70s. From there I worked in oil field electronics for 7 years. I finished my working career as an over the road truck driver. I am now very involved in teaching people to shoot handguns. I also volunteer @ THR WILLOW PARK. I assist in the ER admitting area. Retired truck driver I have been to all 50 states. But not all in a truck. Hawaii courtesy of USN. Alaska paid my way on Holland America. Went back to Japan for two weeks in September 2014. I spend at least 2 days a month teaching Texas License To Carry.
