The Story Thus Far
I graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in Physics in 1984 and went to work for Rockwell in Atlanta. That Fall I met Karen on a blind date going ball room dancing. We were married one year and 1 week later. Shortly thereafter, we moved to Huntsville, AL and spent 6 years working for Teledyne Brown Engineering. Along the way we had two children, Jordan and Colin, and I completed my Master's degree in 1989. In 1996, we had had enough of Alabama and moved back to Atlanta and lived in Buford until 1999. Instead of being transferred, to Missouri, I took a layoff from Boeing and moved to Palm Bay Florida where we have been living ever since.

Currently, Jordan and Colin have both graduated from High School and are now attending college. Jordan is attending Georgia Tech where she is majoring in Biomedical Engineering and Colin just finished his first year at Florida Institute of Technology where he is majoring in Physics. Karen has restarted her hobby of breeding and showing Himalayan cats. In addition to work and paying tons of tuition, I am attempting to get back a bit into ballroom dancing.
