My first race since the being on the 9th grade track team in 1980.
I made it to the finish line, then crashed and burned with an ankle injury. Welcome to midlife - very humbling.....
I was awarded 1st place in the 5K for my age group from one of the Get Bold Events babes, Ingri DeGoote, who is one of the top 5 contestants in the "MaxForm Life Challenge 2013" (Read her personal story at Max Muscle Feb 2014 edition - very inspirational). I was very grateful for the generosity of the Get Bold Events Team - I highly recommend this annual event as a great way to start off the new year.

I finished my goal; complete the 2013 VUM Half Marathon with my best time. Many thanks to the P90X home fitness program by Tony Horton and the nutrition plan by Carrie Wiatt, and the Vancouver Max Muscle Store owners for all of their coaching (And the supplements too!).

After several years of playing the piano/keyboards professionally, I stepped off the public musical scene after September 2001, 9-11, and remained unlisted to enjoy a private life, playing music only for private events, and focusing my time on my personal life, and working a different career.
In 2012, I have stepped back into a more public role. I started to engage public volunteering, playing music on special occasions, sharing information on health and fitness goals, and participating in group fitness activities. I have engaged several wonderful people along the way as I share pictures, events, stories, life experiences; Some individuals whom have inspired me very much. I enjoy the journey - the discovery of people, places, and experiences while discovering my own path; A journey that continues to surprise and challenge me.
After avoiding the social media scene, I set up my personal Google+ page to share pictures, information, and provide a means of contact for anyone who might be wondering where I fell off the earth.
I also owe a lot of thanks to everyone whom I have shared music with in the past, a very long list. This continues to be an influence, and a piece of my life that always stays with me. And special thanks to lifelong memories of musician friends who have passed - Even after all those band fights and arguments, you are missed:-)
My outdoor pictures are available to download and distribute (Please give proper photo credit to me, unless noted). I love to share the beauty of the wonderful Pacific Northwest which I happen to be born and raised in. Especially my found childhood memories of Mt St Helen's, and the fishing trip on Spirit Lake before 1980. A very special thanks to the Mt. Saint Helen's Institute for introducing me to childhood memories of Mt St Helen's again, and introducing me to Google.
To all the individuals who have work for me at Western Graphics & Data over the years, please download you team picture here. Do not hesitate to send me a email; I would enjoy hearing from past team members.
My music recordings and past performances coming soon to "YouTube". Currently, I do not plan on public music performances, only private engagements, thank you.
After my dark, unhealthy years, and living off of restaurant and fast food, I took up fitness and healthy home cooking. I have completed four half marathons the past two years, and hopefully will attempted my first full marathon this year to commemorate my new age bracket.
Wish me luck!
