Story
Introduction
joined air force in 1976 in order to serve my time in the service while I had some choices right out of high school and before the service started what I expected would become a mandatory draft due to IRAN crisis.  I served my 4 years at luke A.F.B. in phoenix
at which point I moved back to Skokie ill and started takeing jobs in electronic repair, to learn basic consumer electronics repair and continued developing my own loudspeakers at first as a hobby and then into the basis for the formation of my own Loudspeaker design and manufacturing co.  I had dreams of recognition as a designer leading to a string of 5 different stores as things started to become more difficult to hold together as my marriage broke up and the hidden reason became revealed with my M.S. diagnoses in 2001.  At least I was able to slow it down a little by treating my self according to the symptoms as they became more apparent in basically the exact same ways the Doctors had determined was the best way to handle things if they had paid attention to me before actual diagnoses. From here it's goes as it goes and I will just have to see what happens. So far so good.
Bragging rights
I used my stereo business to develop my own line of speakers in the 1980s. Unfortunately the industry doesn't take well to having its assumptions flaws pointed out and the time needed to argue for changes wasn't in the cards. But at least I had the chance to design according to my own concepts, it just didn't really matter in the end.
