In 1977 while attending college in Cleveland, Ohio, my friends went exploring the Rockies in Colorado and Wyoming, working in the oil patch, and enjoying some good income, which got my attention, not to mention the excellent skiing. I had put out some broadcasting resumes that landed me job opportunities in Greeley, Colorado and Billings, Montana. So, I decided to test the waters (and snow) and came out to Wyoming to visit my friends that had moved to this area a year earlier. They had just moved from Rock Springs to Evanston with the oil rigs, and, needless to say, I have been here ever since. I worked in the oilfield and also worked part time at the Whirl Inn, which turned into a full time management position for almost nine years. I watched this great little town go through the mud, the flood, and the crud of the oil boom. During that time I served as the Uinta County Liquor Dealers Association President and helped get the Crime Stoppers Organization up and running. In 1986, after I had a gun put to my head, I decided to take on a job at KEVA Radio where I spent a couple of years as operations manager and had the opportunity to be involved with the Chamber of Commerce. I served three different terms on the Board with the Chamber, twice as president. I was also involved with the Chili Cook-Off, Small Town Toys, the Evanston Rotary Club, and the Evanston Tourism Committee. In 1988 the radio station was sold so I decided to take on a new venture, selling cars. I have now enjoyed this entertaining career for over twenty years. My hobbies consist of snow skiing, softball, bicycling and roller blading, playing drums with my church praise and worship team, and, coming soon, golf. I have enjoyed over 30 years living here with my wonderful wife Marie and look forward to another 30 years. And finally, my motto is to live by faith, family, fitness, finance, and fun.
