What I've been doing since high school:

I attended BYU for a year after graduation and then went on a mission to Chilie, Santiago South. After returning home I went to BYU for another year (it was basically free since my dad taught there and I could live at home). Two years was enough of that so I went to Utah State for the next 4 years. I met my wife (Jean--Orem HS '80)and we married in 1984. We stayed in Logan and I completed a BS in Biology and an MS in Food Science in 1987. I took a job in corporate America and will probably stay there.

I worked for Kraft Foods (Glenview, IL) from 1985-1996. Projects included natural and process cheeses and dinner products (macaroni & cheese). We moved to Topeka, KS in 1996 where I work on Science Diet dogfood and catfood in all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures.

After 30 years this car would be nearly twice as old as it was then. I can't say that working on this in auto shop was very productive, but it was a lot of fun.
