Claim to Fame: I was the guy trying hard to fit in but not being all that successful. Most active in the Choir and I sang and played the drums with The Vocalteens. Also participated in many school and Ross Summer Music Theater productions. I was one of the student managers on the football team. Developed a love for photography and my photos of homecoming were placed in the yearbook. Also fell in love with Pam (Andrean '73) and married her five years after graduation. We're still together and have three daughters and one grandchild. Was actgually paid by a local newspaper to photograh the Miss Nude America Contest in 1976.
 
What they're doing now: Attended Purdue University (Northwest) and operated my own photography studio and color lab for ten years. I taught begininng photography and darkroom techniques for MHS adult education department and freelanced as a photographer for the Hearald and Post Tribune Newspapers. I have Commercial Pilot's licenses for single and multi-engine airplanes, commercial pilot's license for helicopters and am a former FAA Certified Flight Instructor. I work for the Evil Empire (Northern Indiana Public Service Company) and will be eligible to retire from Nipsco in 2009 I am active in many sports including: golf, volleyball, scuba diving and weight lifting. You can find me almost everyday at Southlake Nautilus or the YMCA (except during golf season). Trying really hard to fight the aging process.
