I grew up in Missouri and moved through Colorado and California on my way to Boise where I’ve lived since 1975. With an educational background of a BA in History and MBA from Boise State I retired from Hewlett Packard where I worked as a computer programmer/analyst. Since retirement I’ve enjoyed traveling and volunteering in the community -- most currently as a board member of the YMCA where I am active on several committees. Two of my favorite organizations reside in the Yanke Building: KBSU and the Osher Institute. At home I often have more than one radio tuned to 91.5 so that I won’t miss a word of a good program as I move around the house. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute of BSU also provides diverse and stimulating courses and conversations.
