Born in Niagara Falls, NY. Grew up there and in Southern Ontario. I still identify a lot with Canada. Relocated to Western US after serving in the Army. Settled in Kennewick where I met my wife of 23 years. Together we founded Ye Merrie Greenwood Players a traveling Elizabethan theater company which has become my main hobby and taught me a great deal. I used to work as a 911 dispatcher, but gave that up due to stress. Now I work as a school bus driver. MUCH less stressful! I enjoy cooking WAY too much and like experimenting with new ideas. I like dishes that have a lot of spicy flavor, but are not hot.
