Things that are important to me:
The number one priority in my life is service to my Lord Jesus
The second thing in my life is my family. I have two wonderful
childrenwho will be highlighted elsewhere in these pages.
The rest of my waking hours are spent in varoius activities that
Firstly, may I say that I
am a collector of hobbies.
That may sound familiar
to some of you. My main
primary interest is nature
photography, although I am
not very good! I am particularly fond of the mechanics
of the cameras. I particularly like to do close-up work.
Check out my
as I have a scanned some examples of my work. Sometimes I feel more

equipment than actually a picture taker. I often

. For athletic interests, the activity I
would most like to do every day is white water rafting. I have
rafted down the Chatooga( my favorite so far), the
Nolichucky, the Nantahala
and I have canoed down a
few others. Another hobby
I like is catamaran sailing.
We have owned a 16 foot
Hobie Cat since 1976 but
have recently sold it to try a
Waverunner. Now it is gone.
Growing up in the state of
Florida has, genetically, left
me with a need to be by the
ocean. Musically, I am not
very talented but I have been
making an effort to play the
flute. I also know a very few
chords on the guitar. My new
endeavor is to learn SCUBA
diving to do what I have always
wanted to, underwater photography.
My Latest Project
I have finally had an opportunity
to design a major special
effect. In this case it is
a life size replica
of a crashed Boeing
727 airliner. Click on the imaginary
logo below, of flight 766,
to view my resume.
Just for the record, I would love to do this kind
of thing for a living
