According                                               to the instructions on building a web page,  I am supposed to tell you a little bit about lucky ducks!

Born and raised in Denver, Colorado.  Just as I was entering high school, my folks moved to Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. I attended school at a small town about ten miles north of Coeur  d' Alene called Rathdrum. GO PANTHERS!  If anyone is from that area, I would especially love to hear from you. 

The Korean War started while I was in school, so after graduation,      I went into the Army and was sent to Fort Bliss, Texas for basic training.  On July 27, 1953  the fighting stopped.  I ended up in Artillery.  I was assigned to the NIKE AJAX GUIDED MISSILE SCHOOL, then transferred to 738th AIR DEFENSE BATTALION.  We set up a Nike launch area on the east coast to guard from enemy attack during the Cold War.  The Nike Missile was the FIRST SAM (surface to air missile) IN THE WORLD.

Discharged in May, 1955 and utilizing the GI Bill, I attended Colorado Institute of Art.  Upon graduating, I got my first job as a Graphic Designer at a small Denver adverising agency.

I became very interested in film production. That led to twenty-five years of making TV commercials, documentaries and even a couple of feature films.

It was a dark and stormy night...

My sweetie-pie wife Katrina and I are both retired now.  When we are not traveling in Europe or hanging out on the beach in Mexico,  we call Fort Collins, Colorado home...along, of course, with the boss PollyPunkin.
