I love games and I have been playing them since I was little. I played many of the classic board games from that era (the 60s)...Clue, Monopoly, Life, Mouse Trap,
Yahtzee, to name a few. As I got taller (and older) I
found more strategic board games and card games to play. I studied electrical engineering and worked in the arcade game business for many years...pinball machines, video games, simulators...etc.
The best thing about the arcade business was making sure the games worked properly, which
required testing ...sometimes a lot of testing. I was
working for SEGA in Las Vegas, when they asked me to
move to Seattle in 1997. I said yes and have been here
Currently I co-own a pet sitting business with my wife Janice
Critter Care and mostly walk dogs for a living, which is cool because it allows your mind to wonder while you walk; of course you need to be aware of surroundings. But, you can also let your mind wonder and think about; life, games, the cosmos, current events, games, is that tree looking at me. Note: walking is

thoughts ...and some poop bags in one pocket and dog treats in another.
|My dog StellaLuna and I love to hike in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. While we hike we look for faces in the trees. When we spy one (they tend to hide), Iíll take a picture of them. StellaLuna likes to be in the picture when she can. For some of the photographs
I'll create a silhouette to accentuate what we saw. Pop over to the
Forest if you like to see more.

Me: What's going on StellaLuna?
StellaLuna: We're contemplating.
Me: Contemplating life?
StellaLuna: No... we're contemplating which seagull to chase.
