Biography

I moved to Penn Valley in 1987 from Southern California. Bought my 10 acres in Rough and Ready and have been living there since 1990. In 1988 I started working for a plumber and after 4 years I got my contractor's license. 27 years later I retired as a plumber. I started working for Echo Ridge Christian School as a Handy Man, and am loving the school personal and kids. I also volunteer for the food bank and attend 3 Bible studies a week. Went to Penn Valley church for 12 years and at the Grass Valley church for 20 years now, and love the people.
