Formerly: KC5HWJ. A native Texan, I was born and grew up in Dallas. I graduated from High School in 1979 in McKinney (a suburb in far Northern Dallas) where I met my wife Rene' KC5SKN. I then attended Collin College and Texas A&M - Commerce where I earned my MBA.

I first became interested in the hobby as a young boy via my uncle WA5QXD (now K5KJ) and to a lesser degree his friends such as WA5WWH (now K5XG).

Rode shotgun with K5KJ while SKYWARN spotting and caught that bug from him too. The hobby has been near a lifelong ( I didn't become licensed until I was a young adult ) and a very pleasurable experience for me.

First licensed as KC5HWJ as a TECH and gradually moved up the ranks to EXTRA with my current call of K5BL.
