Introduction I grew up in San Diego in the 70's around people -like my parents who were working for General Dynamics, Ryan Aeronautical etc.....they all had neat modern houses and had dinner and cocktail parties---shopping Centers and restaurants then were like being in Tomorrowland-----we went to Disneyland, Santa's Village and Knott's Berry Farm and all these places had an impression on me! I was fascinated by drawing and model making---when I was 5 I was making clay copies of a preview model for Walt Disney World of what became Big Thunder Mountain..whenever we went somewhere I would come home and make paper, wood and clay models of a building or something--went to San Diego State and studied Environmental Design. Worked for Disney Company for 13 continuous years. Currently a model maker and designer .
