My name is David. Born in Olongopo Bay, Zambales, on the Island of Luzon, in the Philippines. We moved nine times before I turned four, then landed in Maryland. Between Annapolis and Baltimore, on the Severn River. In 1989, at age 19, I left home for college, in Idaho. Moscow looked like the biggest golf course you have ever seen. I saw a deer, in town, my first day there. The first day I was a resident I had a close call with an escaped bull, from a rodeo. Whee! Unlike Maryland... Graduated from UI in 1993. Got married to my college sweetheart, in 1993 who broke my heart 7 years later. I've worked at the same place for 12 years [yawn]. Bought a house in 2003, a new Mustang GT, in 2006 and started my backyard chicken "ranch" (9 birds) in 2008.
