Oh fine, I'll play too.

I'm the Senior Computer Specialist for the University of Washington, College of Ocean & Fishery Sciences, School of Aquatic & Fishery Sciences. rolleyes

I do charity work for Vision Hooks & Tackle. IE, I get to wash Joe and Justin's boat, in exchance, I get to wear a Vision Hat and be called a "Pro Staff" for Vision. wink

Someday, I hope to be able to wash Keith's sled so I can be on the "Ultimate Egg Cure Pro Staff" team and get another hat! wink

In it's hay day, I was the CEO for the Sauk River Steelhead Ranch. Due to the big flood of 2001, the Ranch was swept away and is no more. Now, it's just "Justin's Property" and is being guarded by a pack of rabbid half-breed wolf dogs...and BigFoot. wink

Retired crabber, (AK, WA, OR). Current student working towards my masters in education at Evergreen. Couldn't think of going after a job that might pay over food stamp wages. Still trying to figure out what I'm missing by not participating in the daily protests, wearing burlap for cloathing, and continuing my capitalist, dominant social status habit of bathing on a regular basis. However, I'm considering growing dreadlocks (O.K., dreadlock. I could only muster enough hair for one matted lock) to conform to the anticonformist theme at Evergreen.

When not fishing, I can be found making my living as a fisheries habitat biologist for the Umatilla Tribe. I work closely with private landowners who are voluntarily interested in doing some type of riparian/upland habitat restoration/protection on their property. The job is great although like many other jobs these days, way too political.

If you need an equipment appraisal or know someone who might, please contact me. Your cooperation will most definitely keep more fish in the rivers! My business email is Drop me a line. I'd really appreciate it. (And so would the naughty steelhead I've been battling in recent days!)
