Hi there! Welcome to my profile and hubs; I hope you find them interesting and useful.
Educated in Oregon in a small college, I received a BS degree in Chemistry which I leveraged into a job in Virginia, not far from Washington D.C. I lived in a rural county and over the years watched as it developed and the problems of a large city moved in on us. Crime and traffic increased exponentially to the point I finally decided to move back west and do something else.
Moving to Idaho brought me peace. I and my family love the outdoors and often spend weekends camping - usually just pulling off the road in an isolated area. With two sons and now 6 grandchildren it keeps me busy and happy.
Moving also brought a career change - I am now an electrician, helping to build schools, stores, and other commercial buildings. Quite a change from management in a small manufacturing facility, and after 14 years I still enjoy the challenges.
My interests include the sciences and math. I enjoy painting and home improvement around the home. And FISHING!
