Are you a gardener? My friend Tom Ryan has invented the WiserWand that saves water (and therefore saves money) in the garden. Now he needs to get it manufactured. He has a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money for manufacturing. You can help by purchasing a WiserWand for as little as $25. 25% of all profits are donated to clean water and sanitation world-wide.
Will you help? See details at http://kck.st/2oxxOrO.
I've lived in Edmonds since 2003. Before that, I lived in Bellevue for a number of years. A friend moved to Edmonds in 2000 and, when I came to visit, I was always impressed with the friendly, small-town feel of Edmonds. I "fell into" a fixer-upper that needed a lot of work, and thought it would be a good deal. I figured it would take me about five years to get it done. Of course, I should have known better! I got the major repairs done so that it is structurally sound, but it has a long way to go...
I'm a native Washingtonian. I have lived in western Washington since 1978. I grew up in eastern Washington (Colville), then went to college and worked in Spokane for a while.
I have a B.S. in Physics and Math. I went straight from college into the computer field. I have worked for American Sign & Indicator Corporation (in Spokane), Digital Equipment Corporation, and now Washington State Ferries. I have owned my own businesses and have done consulting and contract work.
This site is mostly about Edmonds. However, I have a wide range of interests, including photography, reading, hiking, cross-country skiing, bicycling. Some friends say I have too many interests! Because of all of my varied interests, I never seem to have time to complete everything I want to. But, I am never bored. I will add pages about some of my interests as I have time and find things I think may be "of interest" to you.
