Hi everybody.  I am 30 years old and live in Akron, Ohio, with my wife and our pug dog.  I build mostly 1/72 and 1/48 aircraft with a Canadian bent.  I am the former president of my local model club and I am currently the IPMS/USA Secretary.  In real life I am an attorney, but please don't hold that against me.  Besides modeling I am also a pilot and have been published in a few aviation magazines.  Thanks to Steve B. for running a great site!  If it wasn't for ARC (and a few other great sites) I might get more modeling done:)

The closet of no hope!


My winter traveling home.  It is sometimes hard to get any modeling done as parts keep falling through the floor.  This proves my wife wrong...you can live in an airplane!
