About Me

I'm a retires welder. Started as an apprentice at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.  After my 4 year apprenticeship, I was given the honor of striking the symbolic "first arc" at keel laying ceremonies  for the Submarine USS Tinosa, an attack type nuclear submarine. The honor was  given to me because I had achieved the highest average grades in my  graduating class, both in classroom and in work performance.

I've enjoyed photography as a hobby, but woodworking has really taken most of my free time since my retirement in 2003.
