I am a long time fan of the Trail Blazers. I lived on the North Oregon Coast for nearly 35 years. I have a certificate in Television Productions, and have taken numerous courses in, writing and journalism while at college. During some of my years on the coast, I reported on sports at the NPR station in Astoria. While with the station, I was able to provide some of my reports to The Daily Astorian, as they had a partnership at the time. I also briefly covered sports for the Seaside Signal newspaper in Seaside, and also wrote for an online publication in Clatsop County. Currently, I live in Puyallup, WA with my wife. I am enjoying exploring the area(s) with her and seeing all that it has to offer.
