I am a DXer and contester lover.

In 1985, at 19 years old, after meeting N6TJ on his way to CQWW CW at D44BC and being amazed by his contest stories, travels and operations in CQWW, I immediately made a promise to myself to become world record holder of SOAB CQWW in both CW and SSB. I accomplished it on CW from P40E in 1998. I’m still missing it on SSB, although the 1993 SSB CQWW SOAB KP2A operation would be world record if it were from zone 9 instead of zone 8. I participated in 48 CQWW Contests since 1989 and hold two world records, three continental records and 11 victories.

I am happily married to my lovely wife, Lara. We have two kids (five and seven years old) with one more on the way, due in August.

I am looking forward to meeting other contesters in WRTC2014 and having fun.
