I was born in Denver, Colorado & lived there most of my younger life except for a few other places we moved when I was a kid. My family moved at the age of 5 right after I was going to kindergarten & we lived on Missississippi & Pierce Streets in a trailer park from the time I was born until the age of 5. I had a great time acting like I was fixing my parents car after getting into the trunk and getting the bumper jack out of the trunk. I used to pedal around on a tricycle then as fast as I could without turning myself over on my head like most kids nowadays. We moved right after that to a place called Lochbuie (Space City Center) which was another trailer park community. Nothing was fun then because I was having to cut the grass, empty the mower bag and try not to run over the electrical cord for the lawn mower. I was pushing my little brother around in the wagon we used as a speed racer. My brother and I would play touch football by ourselves after school if nothing else was left to do. My brother who is five years younger than me always wanted to be taught how to do what I was doing and we used to argue a lot. We could never ever keep from arguing then. We kept busy though all through my middle school and high school years. At sixteen, I was learning how to drive by myself and got into trouble driving by myself at night. I was taught how to drive after that by my parents. We lived there until my junior year in high school. I had some friends but moving made it harder to keep friends & interests in anything but cars & how to fix them because I love to go fast with them. This is where I got my main interest in cars. We moved a couple more times which just made it easier for me to keep my interest in cars & watch a lot of stock car racing, the Indy cars, the grand national cars, the alky runners & especially the drag races at Bandimere Speedway where you need ear plugs just to stay there to keep your hearing & go to race tracks like ones in Englewood Colorado, Denver Colorado & Morrison Colorado.
I love to work on cars whether building the components to a car or just maintaining or repairing it. I have always had an interest in muscle cars or supercars. Their designs stand out more than the dinky box cars we drive as economical cars now.
Later as I got older, I got a job as a union ironworker that after 2.5 years got me a messed up back & sitting a lot. So I got into computers, going to school for them & learning them, especially how to connect networks, repairing them, & using them to be make money & not travel as much to find jobs all the time. Using the Internet to do everything keeps me from going to the library & finding what I need on the Internet which is quicker & less costly besides. I got a woman who pays attention to me a lot & we met when I was working at a pawn shop in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This is where I am living right now. She is everything to me & supports me very well in my ideas, thoughts, who I am, my motivation & what goes on in my life.
