I was born in Chicago, Ill. in 1937. My family moved to Phoenix, Az. in 1949. Spent three years in the U.S. Army from 1957-1960 in the San Francisco Bay Area. I went to College there and received my AA in Electronics. I then worked for twenty years for a prestige's Pubishing firm. Then I went into another area of Electronics in the Video field where I worked to make better Television with a well known Video Company. Retiring as a Professional Video Equipment Engineer in 1999 in San Jose, Ca. Through the years I had my Gardening Hobby and Photography. In those years I acquired another hobby of an Orchic Hobbyist for which I grew and enjoyed Orchids of different Genera in my Greenhouse from 1982-2002.
