Which Junior High School did you attend?

Southwest (Satellites)

School Story:

Always had fun in Mr Andrews drafting class with Matt, Bill, Eric. Doing Silkscreen T-shirts, layouts and drafting class work. I guess you can say drafting class has helped me in the real world today. It had prepared me for what I do now for a living. Mechanical Design with Technical Illustrations. I have designed the Hose Reel and Ladies Lawn Cart (have patents on them). I have done a lot of Technical Manuals for the DOD Government and Private section.

Art teacher was great and enjoy time in class, photographs, camera shots, drawing, watercolor and etc. Learning about how commerical art sells stuff in the world. Help me for the illustration world. Doing 3D graphics, 2D illustrations, Animation.

I did not care for English classes. Now, look at me. I am doing Technical Wirting for technical manuals and parts books. Who knew.

Favorite Mel-Hi teacher(s)?

Andrews -Drafting and Sullivian -Commercial Art

Things I would've done differently in high school had I known what I know now.

I would have Study more.

Favorite music:

Rock n Roll, Real Country music!! Not so much with this pop country stuff.

Cool things you've done:

Designed the Hose Reel and Ladies Lawn Carte. I worked on some interested stuff for the government and private companies. Help create new things that we use everyday. If only people knew what is out there now..some very scary stuff..

Anything else we should know?

I did served in VietNam for 2 years. I was with the 314th MAC Det 1 & 4 Air Resuce Sq. Got shot down 3 times in a helicopter (Jolley Green -H3). Wounded in the chest and back. Helped save a lot of lives doing my job. What stories I can tell. Some good days and some bad days.

Lived in Guam for while. My first child was born there right after a typoon hit the island. It was called typoon Pamela. Winds where est. @ 180 mph. All in all it was a beautiful island. And enjoyed my time on the island.

I am now employed.
