SWIL & Seattle don't NEED Batman!
I was born by an immaculate conception:
I wanted to be a ROCK STAR guitar player, so… my mom got me an acoustic guitar!
And I started learning songs.
Well, that didn’t last a day…
………….so, I focused on "my studies" in elementary school.
I got into sports and eventually focused on playing football in high school…
Mount Vernon High School!
I then attended Montana State University where I completed a 5-year program to secure my 4-year degree. I wanted to get the most out of my education… so I stayed an extra year to really party it down and become the YODA of Beer Drinking that I obviously am today.
I did not realize this at the time, but I REPRESENTED the 99%, hence… I most likely represented you!
It was a blast to play NCAA Football, however my football career was cut short the second game of my senior year, when we played Reno and my knee buckled on a pass rush
I moved to Portland, Oregon from Bozeman, Montana. At first, Portland was intimidating, but the more I hung out, the more I realized, this was my home and the people really accepted me. It wasn’t long before I was pushed into a leadership role. Soon, I was in charge of a four-man crew as the supervisor.
My work crew- always clowning around -I tell ya, I sure miss these guys!
…and then I started to realize why…
I will admit it, I was a little lost. Preliminary tests were not looking good.
So, I decided to go back to school. I wanted to try to meet Monica Lewinsky.
and I enrolled at Lewis and Clark College…
…eventually, I attained a Master’s Degree in Psychology.
not before my life was to be changed FOREVER!!!
...randomly on a rainy, cold day…
…I was concentrating on trying to cheat on my parking pass at Lewis and Clark so I could park for free when I was approached by a man suddenly…
Composite of the man I drew personally from precise memory for law enforcement purposes.
He looked me dead in the eyes and said,
Son, I can tell you were born to rock!
I ran from him at a dead sprint.
He did nothing, but stood there and laughed. His minions would soon corner me anyway; I wouldn’t have a fighting chance…
The man and his accomplice at gunpoint… blindfolded, driven around for hours...
I thought for sure I would be forced to join their army against my will!
I was tortured for hours and hours and hours and hours and hours upon hours...
yet, I soon had the resolve to pull my own big boy pants up and take on the world again!
Still photo taken by my torture chamber
security camera just prior to my escape!
As I walked the back alleys of Bridgetown, I began to realize I was not alone. I met others along the path of my journey…
ROCK & ROLL!!
By 2005, SWIL had been conceived. I was the fourth member added, upping a power trio to a foursome.
We were from SE Portland, Baby!
SWIL lasted nearly three years before imploding, making us proud.
Looking forward to rockin’ to represent the City of Roses once again!
