Fun Facts about me


  • I was the first deejay on Holland-America’s flagship the ssRotterdam; I played disco records in the Sky Bar with dimes taped to the turnable arms to keep them from skipping while at sea.
  • In 1980, I lived two blocks away from the Dakota and heard the shots when John Lennon was shot.
  • My partner (now spouse) and I just celebrated our 43rd anniversary together.
  • In high school, the first computer I worked on created punch-cards.
  • The first computer I owned had a 40mb (not a typo) hard drive, which was 14″ x 14″ by 6″ high, an amber 12″ monitor and a 12 pin printer. It cost $3500.
  • In college, I had to stand in-line at the bank on Fridays to cash a check in order to party on the weekend. There were no ATMs.
  • I learned to type on a manual typewriter. I can drive a manual stick shift.
  • I’m left-handed. I can mirror-write (after I found out Leonard Da Vinci did it).
  • I can do addition in my head.
  • I record (DVR) all broadcast television so I can avoid interruptive advertising.
