- I am just a farm boy from Gervais.
- My lifelong dream was to be in business for myself.
- After owning a bar in the 70s and working a vending company out of Portland, I started Pride Vending in 1981.
- It has grown through the years from the golden age of videogames to the current platform of ATMS, digital jukeboxes and entertainment machines.
- Currently president of state association OAMOA (Oregon Amusement and Music Operators Association).
