Comments:

After high school, I went to Napa College for a couple of years, then graduated from U. C. Berkeley with a degree in Geology in 1975. Go Bears!

I retired form Chevron after almost 34 years. No I don't set the price of gasoline. Don't call me about it. I worked mostly on IT projects supporting Upstream (the part of the business that finds and produces oil and natural gas). I have a lot of international experience having traveled to work on projects in Nigeria, London, Aberdeen, Perth, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and Kazakhstan where I worked for two years in the middle of nowhere.

Since I retired I've been trying to fly more and have taken up photography.

Outside interests include desert trips, photography, flying. I've been going to the air races in Reno every September since high school.

School Story:

My fondest high school memories are of the desert trips I went on with the Earth Science club led by Al Lilleberg. I actually turned the tables on Mr. L. and took him on a trip to Death Valley last February. Good fun.

Being in the marching band was pretty much fun as well. Mr. Crane was also a great teacher.

A recent photo of me with the Cessna 170-B that my Dad used in his aerial photography business for over 50 years. I't my turn to take care of it for a while now.

This aerial is looking East from the Carneros district across the airport out through Jamison Canon to the Central Valley. They have flooded the old Leslie Salt ponds returning them to wetlands. 12/27/12
