I was born in Sacramento California in 1946. I am now retired from being a fine woodworker. My talents do not stop at wood working. I am a machinist, metal, and fiberglass fabricator and problem solver. I served in the United States Army and spent 13 months in Viet Nam 1968 and 1969. I attended Sacramento High School and Sacramento City College where I received a Associate Arts Degree in Aeronautics. I also have a great interest in old cars. My wife and I own a fully restored 1971 Karmann Ghia, which I did a ground up restoration in 1993 and we have showed it over the years winning 8 first place awards.
