A native Texan born in Terrell, Texas. Raised in Sulphur Springs, Texas, a small town in East Texas.

Graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Industrial Technology / Math with emphasis in Computer Science from East Texas State University.

Worked in various computer related areas for: Texas Instruments, General Computer Systems, E-Systems, Texas Power & Light Company, and TXU.

My father always kept me interested in technical things when I was younger and my grandfather got me interested in wood working.

I guess all that must have stuck with me.

My mother still lives in Terrell, Texas.

I have one sister

I got my Novice Ham Radio license in 1962 along with a couple of my friends

Two old time Radio Operators (Elmers) who helped me and my friends out back in the beginning were Bill Sarten (K5WUE) and Bill Milam
