I grew up in Nebraska, came to Colorado to play in the snow and pursue the dream. Around 1987 found myself at Red Rocks Community College for a Computer Digital Electronics degree. 1990 started with the U.S. Department of Commerce, NIST working with the Microwave Metrology group. 1991 married the women of my dreams, blessed me with two beautiful girls and still going strong today. In the same year continued my schooling at Colorado State University for an Electronics Engineering degree. 1992 transferred to NOAA working in the Space Forecast Center. 1995 came back to NIST to work for the Time and Frequency group at Radio Station WWV & WWVB.
