Biography

Greetings from Arizona!

My XYL, Kilo India Mic (Kim) & I moved to AZ in October 2014 from Colorado.

Kim had a massive stroke in 2004 at the age of 43. I have been her caregiver for 14+ years.

The winters became too much for her so we decided to move out West!

We are getting settled into our new QTH and looking forward to a "Warm Winter!"

I was licensed in 2006 and my life-long dream of becoming a Ham was achieved.

I believe this hobby saved my sanity. Being a full-time caregiver is rough. Watching

a loved one suffer is the worst feeling in life. While its been a hard road for Kim, she improves

daily. I am committed to her 1000% and have been by her side every single day (except for a few trips to Visalia, Dayton & PJ2).

I have made hundreds of friends all around the world and I cherish the friendships of Amateur Radio.
