Every day sees humanity more victorious in the struggle with space and time. ~ Guglielmo Marconi
I began my Contesting experience in July 2004 when I took first place in the North Texas Section SOLP catagory for the IARU HF World Championships. My primary focus now is participating in multi-op operations and I am often a guest op at NX5M . I have also participated in contests from AB5K, K5NA, NR5M and from the DL1A contest station in Munich, Germany.
I grew up with photography, my dad taught me the basics on a Canon TX when I was a teenager. In the summer of 2009 after returning from Munich and taking nearly 1000 photos with a point and shoot camera I made the dive into the world of Digital SLR photography with my purchase of the Canon 1000D.
One of my biggest interests, that unfortunately I rarely get to enjoy is travel. I love day trips to little Texas towns whenever I can to attend steak cook-offs, BBQ championships and visit antique shops and flea markets. I have been all around the United States from the east to west coast and to Europe with plans to do much more traveling in the coming years and I hope to entertain my visitors with stories of my journeys.
