My Saabs:

1982 900S: First Saab I picked up in 1990. Drove it for 3 years until the 5-speed exploded a gear at 212,000 miles. No longer have

1987 900T: Second Saab purchased in 1994 that got me hooked on the Saab Network. No longer have

1992 9000 Griffin #172: Third Saab, a one-owner, superbly maintained 4-door that runs like a charm - still have it


About Me:

Ex-aerospace engineer type - now employed as a senior business analyst. Die-hard sailboat racer; Summers find me on Lake Union or plowing thru some part of Puget Sound.

Duck Dodge - the weekly summer sailboat race "no class race with class". It was there I came up with Blendzilla 2.0 (

Whidbey Island Race Week is the annual week-long regatta - essentially a "bunch of drinkers with a sailing problem".

Avid motorcycler, golfer, snowboarger, and of course Saab'er.

Currently racked up due to a violent sailing accident in '05 - but I'll be back!


My Favorite Movies:

Hunt for Red October
Any Tom Clancy inspired movie (Patriot Games, etc)


My Favorite Music:

Any streaming tunes from SomaFM (Groove Salad especially) Seattle radio stations KWJZ, KMTT, KZOK. Bands: Dave Matthews, U2, Stevie Ray Vaughn
