Legal Shield

Originally from a small town in California, called Sonora, I grew up watching behind the scenes of movie making, as movie stars from the 80’s filmed shows like, Back to The Future, The A-Team, Little House on The Prairie, and various western movies. It was real cool to meet the cast of different movie sets, and being able to be an “extra” in a few scenes back when I was a young boy.

Meeting famous people for me was a great motivator to want to excel in my later years, and gave me the desire to study the business of film, music and television broadcasting, as I went on to study after high school.

One of my first jobs growing up was as paperboy, and I also worked to help clean yards for the neighbors and their friends, by doing basic landscaping, stacking wood, cleaning gutters, etc. I did what most young kids do growing up, washing dishes, busing tables while working in restaurants as well, but one of my most memorable jobs was being a tour guide for the local train park, Rail Town, in Jamestown, CA. I got to tour people around the park and talk about movies that were filmed in the area, and about some of the props they used to modify the train engines that were housed there. Also got to show some of the stuff that the movie makers would use on set. I was in my early teens at that point, but one memory that I try to forget was the chore of having to sweep all the passenger train cars and I had to wash all the windows of the passenger cars as well. It was not fun, but I got paid!

I almost forgot, the small town where I grew up is said to be haunted, and I personally had a few “encounters” with a ghost or two at the famous Willow Hotel when I had to work after closing hours there. Search out the Willow Hotel in Jamestown, California and see for yourself what others have to say about this historic place.

Moving on, I was into radio broadcasting, studied that in high school, and volunteered for the school radio station, where I was called the “Soul Man!” That was good times! I then worked at a major radio station, and continued those studies in junior college at Modesto JC. My schedule was tough, since I was going to school full time and was working full time overnights for that radio station. I then moved to Seattle, Washington to study business for the music and broadcast industry, and advertising at the Art Institute. Seattle kept me there for a good 15 years, until I met my bride and got talked into moving back to Northern California.

Now with school behind me, and taking my lumps in the corporate world I have teamed up with a fantastic company that allows me to work at my own pace, on my terms and offers me the ability to truly help other business owners, and their families by offering a suite of identity theft protection and legal services. I am currently an executive with Legal Shield and love to introduce legal resources, which are available and affordable for everyone and the addition of the Identity Theft Shield makes for a great 24-hour benefit!
