I don’t remember how I first became interested in bonsai, but I have been creating and growing them for over 30 years.
My other interests include snowboarding, hiking (mostly in the American West), travel, bicycling, ping-pong, and of course my new granddaughter!
Three years ago, I retired from my second career as a High School Math Teacher (my first was Mechanical Engineer/Inventor- I hold over 20 US Patents). That led to my interest in (senior) ping-pong, and allowed me a lot more time to work on my trees!
Also- my best buddy has four legs and his name is Max. Maybe you will get to meet him?
Hope to meet you in April!
