Joined 10 years ago from Eugene, Oregon
Born in Abilene Texas, lived in southern California for many years, and in Oregon for over thirty years. I am married, have one daughter (23 already). I worked for many years in the title insurance business, was "retired" recently. Looking for work of some kind, Trader Joe's would be great!
I graduated from Santa Ana High School,and served in the US Army ( was drafted and designated as an MP at Fort Ord, CA) for two years. Graduate of the University of Oregon with a degree in English. I took two terms of graduate work in secondary education before getting back into the title business.
I did some acting in local theater years ago, and enjoyed it, but it takes soooo much time. My wife and I took a "voiceover" workshop and as a result got a professional voice CD, which we handed out to agencies around town, no jobs yet except one where I got to play dead for nine hours in a training film for first responders. I hope I don't get typecast! She did a similar training film as a stroke victim. Got better pay too!
Update for 2012 is that I actually got a (very) small part in a film made for festivals. The film is twelve minutes long, called Never Gonna Break. I played Sheriff Dan and even had two short lines. See my hub: Sheriff Dan and Me.
I write poetry and have won and placed in some contests sponsored by the Oregon Poetry Association. The reading group I belong to, Red Sofa Poets is a great help.
You will find some poetry, short fiction, articles, and humor ( I hope) in my Hubs.
Please feel free to read, rate and share my HUBS. I appreciate the comments.
One of my favorite Hubs that I wrote is Fishy Business, because it is written in that Noir style that Raymond Chandler did so well.
