Father of two wonderful and beautiful daughters, Bailey (24) and Blair (21). Bailey is a cum laude graduate of the University of Montana and now is in a Physical Therapy doctorate program in Fargo, ND. Blair just finished (last week) her college education and nursing degree, cum laude, from Montana State University-Northern. She begins her first nursing gig on July 1st, here on the Oregon Coast. Both fish with me. Both their college GPA's are through the roof. Me? I majored in beer at the University of Oregon, Class of '79. Oregon State University, Class of '81.
I have been a HS teacher for 39 years. My wife, Jennifer, also teaches HS.
I was a mayor for 12 years, have been a port commissioner for 26 years, currently am doing a part-time interim gig as a Harbor Master (2 months only). I'm on the board of directors for the electric utility that runs up and down the coast for more than 100 miles. I am the Chair, or convener, for the South Coast Oregon Regional Solutions advisory team, appointed by the governor, focusing on economic development. I am currently doing a project management gig for Oregon Solutions, involving the municipal acquisition of a bunch of timberland that surrounds the small town. I am on the Oregon State University/Elliot State Forest Advisory team......working on seeing the 83,00 acres of working state-owned forest be O & O'ed (to some sort of degree) by Oregon State University, becoming the largest university owned forest in the US. Oregon Business Magazine selected me as one of Oregon's 50 Great Leaders a decade ago, or so, for my leadership in the off-shore wave energy field. I don't sit still very well and I've been blessed with interesting opportunities.
I'm an avid reader and the proud daddy of two dachshunds, Holly and Junie.
That's mostly it. Oh, I try to workout every day.
Oh, oh...I like a good IPA or Hazy (who doesn't?) and a fine Scotch (ditto?). And the best drug in the world is McDonalds' french fries.
