I grew up in University Place and later Gig Harbor. My dad was a junior high school woodshop teacher and later owned a custom residential cabinet shop, so I have been involved in woodworking all my life. I won the All-American Soap Box Derby in 1966 from Tacoma (another woodworking project). I went to college to pursue architecture and drawing, but cam e back to Gig Harbor to help my Dad with his cabinet shop. I am currently working for a large custom commercial cabinet company. My wife and I live in Puyallup with our two dogs.
