Since graduation? University of Washington School of Oceanography, then Joined the Navy to see the world, followed by building and racing sailboats, saw more of the world.

After an internship in the greenhouses of Holland, made a career in ornamental horticulture. Took a side trip to get a business degree in entrepreneurship from U of Texas San Antonio. And some how became an adjunct professor at San Antonio College giving seminars on Test Taking, How to Study, and Stress Management. That was my day job,
evenings I worked for the US Army and Southwest Research Institute messing up their experiments in psychic phenomena.

Then, 20 years ago, started designing and building low income housing. Traded sailing and greenhouses for horse ranching and home building in California. Eventually got distracted and went to work for a Forensic Engineering Firm - I get to build models and blow things up (It's just like High School was)

Now I am attempting to retire, take more naps and build a house boat to live on quietly in the Sacramento River Delta.

School Story

As a "Science Nerd", I was not sent to Hobby Hall to learn to dance, however I did hear of the legendary terror of Mrs. Pevetoe, the dance instructor.

Fast forward 18 years, I am helping organize a community theater in Blanco County Texas, guess who I find? I even got a couple of free dance lessons in doing the two-step (Hey... it was Texas)

Hi Linda, I got to northern California two years before you,(1986). I am surprised that we haven't bumped into each other - I have had many serendipitous moments in my life and we live only 20 miles away from each other.

My big sojourn into the Non-profit Arts world was serving for 12 years on the Board of Directors of the Berkeley Arts festival Guild in the 1970's. Since neither of us are headed for New Jersey, how about a micro reunion lunch in Santa Rosa? (707-987-0668)
