Personal Comments:
I have thoroughly enjoyed providing the ECARS service and serving ECARS for the past three years as President and hope to continue giving back to the organization going forward.

In my professional life, I served in the Air Force as a Fire Control Mechanic, and then after college (Louisiana Tech) and Graduate School (University of MD, College Park) became a High School Media Specialist and Public Librarian, retiring in 2009.

In addition to Ham radio, I enjoy flying and bicycling in my spare time.
