 After graduating from Coral Gables High in 1964 I graduated from the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering in 1968. Then I worked for GE for a half year until I got drafted into the Army where I fixed crypto equipment in Vietnam and Germany.

I was working evenings in the Frankfurt Audio Club when I met Dr. Bose (Bose speakers), and after getting out of the Army I moved to Atlanta and became the first Bose rep in the southeast. I eventually became SE Regional Sales Manager for Bose until I got bored with that. Then I moved to Utah for 9 months as Sales Manager of a small manufacturing company, then moved back to Atlanta where I've been self employed ever since.

In 1984 I got a ham radio license (N4LCD) and have been an active ham ever since, getting the Extra Class license a year ago.

For the last 12 years I've been trading stocks and daytrading futures. For the last 9 years I've also been teaching others how to daytrade E-Mini S&P futures and now have 3 instructors helping me out. I work out of my home office.

My first wife, Judy, and I had 4 daughters and my oldest daughter works for me. I have one grandchild on the way. My wife, Lydia, has 2 daughters, 7 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild. So we stay pretty busy.

I also do free PA System design, updates, debugging, and training for churches. We're both very active in a small Pentecostal church.

I recently found out that Howie Thickman is also a ham radio operator and we got together in Chattanooga. I live between Atlanta and Chattanooga in Cartersville, Georgia.
