Right after high school I started working in the Ladies Sportswear Dept. at E.J. Korvettes on Rockville Pike. A young buck working in the Ladies Sportswear Dept. you'd think there would be many memorable moments...the only one that has been seared into my mind is the gal who came waltzing into the department in a pair of lime green hip huggers with white poke-a-dots and a matching halter top, full bare midriff...sounds exciting! Only problem was she had to be 90 if she was a day!! But she was hip! I resigned my duties at E. J's to take a Job at The Dept. of Justice, Office of Immigration and Naturalization. On my breaks I would check out the file cards on the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Fidel Castro among others. From there I transferred over to The Dept. of Health Education and Welfare. I worked there as a Visual Communication Specialist. As some of you may remember I spent most of my time at WJ drawing Hot Rods and "Ginks" in class rather than paying attention to our teachers. (a Gink is a caricature created by "Mouse" a pseudo famous artist who airbrushed tee shirts at Hot Rod Shows). Well it paid off. I've been in the art field most of my life.     During the 5 years with HEW ('67-'71) I managed rock bands. The first was The Ludicrous Sunflower Dynasty, with George Demma (WJ alum.) on drums. We played in Georgetown, colleges, and out of state. That group evolved into "The Harrison Act" and played in clubs in Georgetown and was the house band for Sam's Club on Conn. Ave in DC. I then formed a new band with the lead singer of "The Fallen Angels" home based at the district line off Wisconsin Ave. They were an original band doing their own music and had an album. Their lead singer Guy (pronounced Gee) and I formed a group called "Gravity". We went to California and recruited Kathe, the lead singer of a group called "Natty Bumpo" who used to perform in Wash. DC. Gravity played clubs in DC like My Mothers Place, The Keg and the Silver Dollar in Georgetown. When Gravity had the opportunity to go and play in St. Thomas for 6 months I quit my government job. In 1972 Kathe and I got married. Her brother and I started a refuse company based in Gaithersburg, MD. We had a few trucks. One we painted burgundy and gold and I painted the Redskins logo big on the back. The truck was what was called a Barrel Packer, so the round back lent itself well to the logo. We actually wound up with Larry Brown, the running back for the Redskins, who lived in Potomac, as one of our clients. In 1976 Kathe and I divorced and I left the refuse co. I got a job as a technical illustrator with a publishing co. at DuPont Circle in DC. From there went to ARINC Research in Annapolis as a Tech. Illustrator. They developed the Harrier Jet, the one that lifts off straight up in the air then blasts off. In 1977 I remarried. We were together 15 years and had 3 children, a son Bray 25, daughter Casey 23, with one daughter Makaiya Renne and another son Blake 21. All my boys are single.     In 1980 I started work as an Advertising Artist/Designer for Patuxent Publishing Co. based in Columbia, MD. They produce 13 weekly newspapers and the Columbia Magazine. I worked for them full and part time for 18 years winning over 35 regional advertising awards and 5 national advertising awards from Suburban Newspapers of America which included Canada. During that time I also worked for ad agencies and for Mattress Discounters Advertising Department. I've designed numerous corporate logos. One still shows up on TV sometimes "Oak Tree Furniture" not one of my best, but it has endured. I remarried in 1997 (Threes a Charm) her name is Evelyn and we will be together thru time and all eternity. Evelyn enriched our family with 2 children, Melanie 33 and Laura 31. I had known Evelyn and her children since 1977. Melanie married and has two children, Emily 5 and Sam 11 months and one on the way. They live in Rexburg, Idaho. I currently work designing ads for The Baltimore Sun newspaper. They are owned by The Chicago Tribune.     As a hobby I collect historical documents and artifacts. Some of the most interesting are the ancient Egyptian and pre-Columbian artifacts. I have some early documents including Illuminated Manuscripts. There is an interesting page printed in 1532. It is a printed page from the letters that Cortes wrote to King Charles of Spain, describing how unbelievably beautiful and advanced Mexico and it's people were and how he turned around and annilated them. Go figure. I have a Mayan artifact to frame together with the page along with its translation. The page is printed in Latin. I've obtained a rusticle from the RMS Titanic that I need to frame with three pieces of coal recovered from the wreakage along with signatures of one of the survivors and Robert Ballard who discovered the wreakage.    I haven't had any contact with most of you who I went to school with since 1966. Most of you probably don't know who I am, but I was the guy that hung out every morning on the corner by the school bank across from the school store watching everyone go by. Actually, one Saturday about 8 years ago, after one of my daughters soccer games near Gaithersburg, I took her by WJ to show her my old High School. A custodian just happened to be there and he let us in. I couldn't resist leaning up against that wall just one more time. I was surprised to find out they are now the Walter Johnson Wildcats. They have a new brass Wildcat logo inlaid into the floor right next to our old brass Spartan logo. Go Spartans! Oh, and incase you were wondering... yes I can still draw a Gink in a Hot Rod.
