After high school I attended SDSU and graduated with a BS in Geography. In 1985 I snared a job at 3M as a security guard...relax, they don't give us a gun!
In 1988 I married Paula Becker and we are still happily married. She works part time as a teacher's aid at a church during the school year, and is also self-employed as a petsitter. We have no children but have enjoyed many pets throughout the years (rabbit, hamster, parakeets, canary, hermit crabs, freshwater and saltwater aquariums, and of course, cats and dogs).
My hobbies include weather-watching/storm chasing, and am a volunteer for a nationwide precipitation-reporting network called CoCoRaHs.

School Story:

I'm getting lots of memories, some from Middle School, some from High School. I was the kid that had the decrepid notebook stuffed full with loose papers, which almost daily would "somehow" end up on the floor.
A good memory, as Mike Guss mentioned in his profile, was that of Mrs. Lippert's typing class, as Mike and I were the only boys. Gotta love those "IBM Selectrics"...the wave of the future!
And of course Mr. Adkins' Electronics class in the Multi District building...can't remember how many power supplies Scott Winker shorted out.
And how about Frau Koenders' German class...I'm STILL conjugating verbs in my head! Speaking of that, I seem to remember having my shoes tied together in the AV room several times while sitting at a cubicle. Not positive who, but Scott McDaniel or Tom Chleborad come to mind. I was also very proud of my car in those days...1962 Rambler (aka "the Crumbler")...what a babe magnet...NOT
And of course, my first date...oh, wait, that was AFTER high school. I guess being petrified of girls, having thick glasses, and generally being a geek can have an effect on one's lovelife.
