Whatcom County Real Estate
I joined the US Army in 1986 intending to check out the world and get some money for College. The summer after I graduated, I was off to basic training: Fort Bliss, El Paso, Texas. It was 113 degrees the first day I arrived! Wow. After Advanced Individual Training, I was stationed at Ramstein Air Force Base, West Germany. My job classification was 16-H, Air Defense Artillery – Operations and Intelligence Assistant. Call me crazy, but I really enjoyed the Army. Living in Germany was an awesome experience. It was a completely carefree time of my life and the military structure was great.
After receiving an Honorable Discharge from the Army at the ripe old age of 20, my Grandfather landed me a job working in a fish cannery in Port Graham, Alaska. Port Graham is a friendly small town (population 200!) located on the tip of the beautiful Keani peninsula. Remote as can be, Port Graham can only be accessed by boat or small plane from Homer, AK. During salmon season, I was hired on as a deck hand on a 32-foot local Native fishing boat, the Tianna Lynn. What a summer! I worked with a great crew, saw a lot more than I expected and saved some more money. Alaska is incredible. Though I decided to go back home to return to school, later in life I went on to work on a few other fishing boats: the Northern Glacier in the Bearing Sea, AK, the Mary Jo, in Bristol Bay, AK, and the Nancy Anne, out of Bellingham.
While not at work I enjoy playing, woodworking, yard work, travel, camping, quading and skiing.
