I lived a lifetime of humility knowing I had
responsibility for other people's lives.



Strong Danish roots with a need for discovery and an eye for innovation.

An early imagination made the blue sky the ocean which meant I was above the clouds! Boom! My first shot of adrenalin.

This led to many adventures with people who inspired me to seek

out my potential.

Not all challenges came from the

fire ground or the mountains but as an elder it pleases me that life didn't change who I am.


The mid sixties came at the same time as my need for independence. What also came with this awakening is the fact that the world isn't always fair or just.

Grad was in '72 and Alice Cooper  sang, "School's out forever! . . . BLOWN TO PIECES!"

In 1967 they herded all the kids into the school gymnasium to talk to us about the Environment  and what that actually meant. I remain mindful of my responsibilities to the planet.
