  Let start with your clan name?

     >XI< Frags

    Do you have any nicknames? Personal or in game?

    Oh I am sure I do, I just don't know what they are!

    When and where were you born?

     9-11-58 Pensacola Florida

    When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

     A Pilot

    Where have you lived?

    Florida, Texas, California, Maryland, Berlin, Hong Kong, Pennsylvania and Oklahoma.

     

    What got you into gaming?

     My father in law was a Sr. Electrical engineer that worked on the space shuttle. He built a computer, the first one I ever saw. It took up his whole living room. It had a teletype and we programed it to play a 3D game printed on paper, Star Trek, it was like Battleship, only 3D. When you told the computer that you fired and hit the enter button it took like 20 seconds before the printer would print out the results of your shot. We killed many trees playing that game.

    Your first game you played?

  The first store bought computer game was on a VIC 20, who knows what the game we loaded in that thing.

    And what do you play now?

  COD4 and COD5

    Why did you join XI?

 I was part of the original Breakfast club with Johnny Dos and he got me in the clan. At one point COD5 was all but dead and I made admin. The game survived but for a time I was not too sure it would.

    What do you get from being in this clan?

    Well, gaming with my friends!

    What is your favorite hobby?

    Flying my airplane, a Cessna 170a

    What is your favorite travel destination?

   Loved Austria, but here in the USA the Florida panhandle beaches.

    Are you married?

  Widowed, lost my wife Feb 2019

    Do you have children?

   5, 3 of my own and two step kids

    What kind of pets do you have, if any? What are their names?

   One dog, Jazz an old black lab. She keeps me company.

    Are you a sports fan? If so, what is your favorite team?

    Nope, hate sports ball of all types.

    What causes are you passionate about?

   I have a somewhat rare blood type, not the type but antibodies I don't have that kill will kill infants, I give a lot of blood. Gallons and gallons so far.

    Do you volunteer? If so, where?

    What is an interesting fact about you?

    I lived in Berlin in the early 70's, when I wanted to skip school I would ride the S bahn to East Germany, go through customs and hide in East Berlin all day. I figured nobody would find me there. As a result I hate all things communist! It might not have been too smart of a thing to do! lol


    Have you continued your education past college or university with career development seminars or classes? What kind?

 I did not go to college, I have a technical license. I am an aircraft mechanic. Retired now, but am hoping to get my Inspection authorization which will allow me to sign off major type work on aircraft.

    Did you know what profession you wanted to work in when you started college?

  Aircraft mechanic

    Did you belong to any professional organizations?

    What is your current job title?

  Retired bum!

    Did you win any awards or recognitions during your education?

    Where do you work?

   I don't

    What other job titles have you had in your career?

    Where else have you worked?

   I worked for American Airlines for 35 years, retired in 2020

    Why did you choose to work in your industry?

   Love aircraft

    Why do you like your job?

    How would you describe your career?

    What are some accomplishments you've achieved during your career?

   I didn't kill myself.

    Describe a time that your career was rewarding.

   I loved working on aircraft, hated the airlines. The most rewarding day is the day I retired.

    If you could give a younger person career advice, what would it be?

   Don't be a mechanic, be a pilot!

    What is your favorite thing about your career or industry?

  Airplanes!

    What is a valuable lesson you learned in your career?

  Doesn't matter how much you care at the airlines they will beat you down.

    What do you hope to accomplish in your career?

    Are you involved in any professional/ non-profit/sports organizations? If so, do you have a title or rank within these organizations?

    What is your favorite sport?

    Do you play any sports?

    If you were granted 1 wish, what would you wish for?

   I could go back in time, I would have not gotten married so young and would have gone in the military.

    If you won a very large amount of money what would you do?

    Buy a faster airplane of course! Then buy a new house for all XI members!
