A little about me...
I am a 63 Year Old Alaskan
I was born on Kodiak Island in 1951
I homesteaded in Sterling in the 1950's & 60's
I like both Party's, and this is my 3rd time running for office . . .
the first time I ran against Steve Cowper
1985/86 later I ran against Ted Stevens, as that was the year Alaska was taking over the Alaska Railroad, and I wanted wording in the agreement giving Alaska the Right to Extend the RR to AMTRAK.
I went to grade school in a "One Room Log Cabin" with all grade (Sterling), and then to Kenai High.
It was so much fun I never stopped going to schools every chance I could.
So I have been a Teacher most of my life . . .
(mostly for Corporate America), other then when I was going to school myself, where I first learned to be a Electronics Technician
Ah Sucks some-where in-there along-the-way, I also Learned to Crab & Fish ...
I have lived and worked all over our great State from Barrow to Ketchikan.
I was there when Coastal Drilling, Drilled The First Oil Well in Alaska, near Sterling, Alaska.
I was there when they Drilled the First 2 Oil Wells in The Arctic Put 1 & Put 2.
I have worked in every Major Industry in Alaska, so I understand the need for Alaska to Diversify Our Economy, and Reduce Taxes.
I enjoy life long friendships and appreciate "good people".
My hobbies include gardening, biking and just being outdoors.
My passion is Agriculture Research and in cooperation with Ocean Spray I developed a plan to bring new Economic growth to Alaska.
I love Photography and Music.
My Family won The First Indy race, and much more.
I Support a greener future through Hydrogen Power
Generation, and Hydrogen Auto/Truck Fuel.
