I grew up in the agricultural and ranching region of the Pacific Northwest. After college and service in the Navy, I married and raised two smart ,successful daughters while developing business interests in Oregon. I owned and managed a Dental Technology Laboratory for twenty-seven years while also buying and selling residential properties the hard way as a "do it yourself-er". After selling my business, I RV'd and motorcycled throughout the country for a time, heading back to Oregon when offered an interesting commercial Property Management position, but the beauty and great weather of the Southwest stayed with me. After a couple of cold wet winters, Arizona and a new career beckoned bringing me to Tucson and Long Realty. A lifelong interest in outdoor activities and nature emerged in early childhood while hiking, hunting, and fishing the streams and woods near our home. I have hiked the Pacific Crest trail from Northern Calif. to Washington. I spent several months in the Pacific on a National Geographic ship. Back in Oregon my time spent exploring challenging rivers and Fly-fishing led to becoming an Oregon licensed river guide and taking experienced and novice customers on trips. I still hike, fish, as much as possible.
