It's funny that I couldn't wait to get done with high school. Three or four years later I was wishing I could go back. Now..... Just happy living life and enjoying the experiences that helped to mold me into whom I am today.

In 1990 I married Lydia Neiswender. In 1991 we had our son Josh; he is such an incredible kid!
We were later divorced in 1993.... The divorce was horrific and life changing. When I hear people say they had a really bad divorce I just laugh inside and think to myself you have no idea.... LOL! She and I are good friends now but it took a long time to get there.

I attended SLCC from 89'-91' my major was engineering. I also attended CCI from 96'-98' and received my CNE (certified Novell engineer).
I have been working in the machining field since 1987 and currently work for SKF in Salt Lake City. I am the graveyard manager for the shop. SKF is a Swedish owned company and currently employs 44,000 employees worldwide.

After my divorce in 93 I took a yr off from my career and worked for a local ski resort for 2 seasons. I worked ski patrol and got into downhill racing. I was working hard to get an invite to the Olympic trials but blew out my knee on a freak accident. My knee was never the same after that. I love the outdoors no matter what the conditions are.
Ive developed a very competitive drive as I have become older. Im a sports fanatic and I dont like to lose at anything. I wish that I had this kind of drive, love of sports and determination when I was in high school, there would have been a lot more doors open for me after graduation.

My passions in life are Fly fishing, 4 wheeling, anything competition driven and helping people that are less fortunate. Thanksgiving I like to help out at the soup kitchen for the homeless and Christmas I usually take a bag of toys to Primary Childrens hospital for the kids or do sub for Santa.

My son is such a great kid. He is in drama at Hillcrest and he is really good at acting. Its funny because he is doing the things in high school I wish I would have done. Im so proud of him, I could not have asked for a better son. He is brilliant too! Some of the things that he comes up with just blow me away. He did get in really bad trouble one time when he was about 13. It is definitely one of the funniest moments I can remember. He and a friend decided to go for a joy ride on a golf cart, courtesy of the Waterford school in Sandy. They drove it to the McDonalds up the street and went through the drive thru and ordered a couple of Big Macs. On the way back they got pulled over by a cop and my son was telling me how the cop was telling them to turn off the engine on his microphone. I was trying to explain to him that he couldnt just take someones property without permission but I was laughing so hard about the whole scenario that I dont think my explanation really registered with him. Guess you had to be there&..LMAO!

Currently working on getting my business going so that I may retire in my early fifties and travel around this great country of ours.

School Story:

I'll get back on this.
