My interests include photography, art, music, woodworking, and spending time in the outdoors. I  enjoy activities that will enrich my intellect and expand my knowledge base. I like to figure out how things are made and then make adjusts to them so that they can function in a better manner. I have spent time repairing old guitars. In addition I taught myself to play guitar. I am currently learning how to build guitars.


My objective is to be employed in a full time position where I can continue to use the skills I have aquired over my lifetime. I would enjoy working in a creative environment. 


I have been replacing guitar pickups, electronics, hardware and necks since 1985. Currently I am learning lutherie in hopes of building my own guitars in the future.
