about me

Learned to play bridge in college (Texas Tech University) where I studied Civil Engineering.  Joined the Navy in 95 and spent 15 years as an Officer on Aircraft Carriers and Destroyers.  Currently living in Southern Maryland (a hour SE of Washington DC) working at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, I am looking for a serious -long term bridge partner to meet at NABC and maybe an occassional regional.
