I moved to Los Angeles (Hollywood) January 1970, and have lived here since. I moved here to attend Art Center College of Design and Los Angeles City College taking photograqphy classes. Was hired as a commercial photographer for a local firm and persued that field of endeavor for approximately 10 years.
I had always had an interest in quality audio and around 1978, a friend asked if I would provide audio euipment for an upcoming event/party held at UCLA. Not only did provide the audio gear, I DeJayed the event. The party was such a success, I was hired again and again for events at UCLA. What started as a weekend hobby became a full-time profession. I was spinning records at major events and dance clubs throughout the southern California area. In 1980, I started Sound Service Company. At the time, our main focus was the emerging and exciting disco club industry. For many years, my company designed and installed large audio and dance lighting systems for the entertainment industry. Today, our business is mostly focused in/on the health and fitness industry. Our most recent contract involves upgrading the audio systems in 30 aerobics, yoga and spin studios for a major health club chain.

Happiest of birthdays from sunny and warm Southern California! See, I'm still a southerner. Best wishes to you and yours! The photo is of Squirrely McClaine or possibly Squirrely Temple - it's hard to tell, they all look alike...Ha!
