I was born in Colorado Springs. We moved to Durango where I went to school before serving in Germany and then in Viet Nam as a young man. After a period in Arizona we moved back home to Colorado and to Montrose, an area I’d always liked. I’m an accountant, but I also did construction work. I enjoy working with my hands.
Ho notato che il Museo di un giorno Mountain West semplicemente guidando da e preso il mio primo tour 5 anni fa, poi è tornato per un altro con la mia famiglia. That did it. I was hooked. I volunteered to become a tour guide and show people this incredible collection of America’s western history.
Mi piace dare tour e l'utilizzo di storia per fare un punto sulla vita poi, oggi, e domani.
I give tours on Mondays and Saturdays. Let me show you around our American West.
Texas was home when I was a young man. First Galveston, where I was born. Then Houston where I went to High School and to the University of Houston to get my Business Degree. Ho incontrato e sposato una donna meravigliosa giovane (e ancora la mia moglie), and one year our vacation was a tour of Colorado. Ouray really struck a chord with us and after several more trips, we moved here and bought a lovely little art gallery and gift shop. But over a decade later, un boom del petrolio in Texas ci richiamò, which was kind of ironic as our daughter was moving to Colorado for work at about the same time. So eventually we came back to the Rockies and settled in Montrose to be near our daughter and all the grandkids. The better part of a decade slid by and I retired (per la terza volta nella mia carriera), questa volta dal TSA, che servono l'aeroporto di Montrose.
The Museum feels like home to me. It’s like a constant education. I am always finding something new or learning yet another detail about what’s on display here and about the people who lived this rugged western life. When I give tours, Mi piace vedere come le persone assorbire tutte le informazioni che è qui.
