I am a Colorado native born and raised in Colorado Springs. My great grandfather homesteaded just north of Calhan. Both of my parents were born and raised in Calhan. I moved to Calhan in 2000 and have two sons, one lives in Denver and one in Colorado Springs. I am a veteran of Desert Shield, Desert Storm. I have been an electronic tech for over 35 years. I helped build the space shuttles, worked on the missile silos and even a cable guy for awhile. I worked at the Air Force Academy for 8 years and recently retired.
