I grew up in Anchorage, AK. I learned early in life to appreciate the outdoors and athletic lifestyle. After college, at Oregon State University, I joined the Navy to become a Naval Aviator, like my father, and flew off numerous aircraft carriers. I left the Navy to fly airliners for Delta Airlines for 27 years and retired from Delta in 2005. Concurrent with flying for Delta, I also flew for the Naval Reserve in Marietta, GA. Since retiring from both the Navy and Delta, I've entertained my passion of raising, training and hunting with my bird dogs- all of them Brittanies. I field trial (National Shoot to Retrieve- NSTRA) with them, and I've have had great success over the years, but, mostly, I enjoy traveling around the country from September to February hunting upland game birds. After my retirement from Delta and doing nothing for a year, my long-suffering wife came home and told me to "get a job". I promptly earned my Real Estate License and, after 8 years, retired from that endeavor, as well.
I am married to the former Billie Jean Prince, of Griffin, GA and I have three children- all grown.
