After graduation life became an adventure, including some college, lots of travel and just learning to enjoy life. My education has been diversified to say the least attending several colleges and universities a few courses at a time and ending my formal education at Iowa State.
My occupations have been many, with the last 35 years spent in broadcasting
in one form or another. I have many things I love, my wife Chris, my daughter
Paula and my son Shad. I love also love Ames and Iowa. What I am and what I will
be is always grateful to the people and things that have surrounded my life in
this great part of the country we live in. The are a lot of things I've left out
but I'm sure we'll share more as you continue to visit this site.
To say my life has been interesting over the years would be understatement. The opportunities that have come my way, the people I have met and the adventures I have had are sometimes more than I can even believe. My greatest pleasure is being an untalented guy who has attempted to entertain and put smiles on peoples faces. There are some things in that effort I assume have been long forgotten and with any luck would not come back to haunt me. Yesterday my son informed me that he has come in to possession of an audio tape of me singing with the Ochanpaugh Accordion Trio my rendition of a polka standard "Just Because"...The negotiations have begun.
