I worked for 2 different title insurance companies in the 70s and had a little over 5 years experience, then I worked for another Lien company in the 80s for 8 ½ years, and left there when I was hired by Lien Research Corp. on October 17, 1988, and I am on my 28th year with Lien Research. I have been doing property research for about 38 years. When I started with the title cos. we had no computers, some documents were on microfilm, but mostly we had the old tract books, when document was recorded, the title cos wrote them by had in the tract book pertaining to that property, we had an all night shift. I worked a little construction in the 70s, but never made a profession out of it, along with some retail in high school and later on. I like to play golf, not as much as I would like though. I am a big Mariners and Seahawks fan as well as the Huskies. I also enjoy model railroading, good winter hobby, and belong to a model railroad club in Everett. I was born in Toledo, Ohio, 1948, my parents moved to Seattle in 1951, and have been here ever since. I grew up in Bellevue, graduated from Sammamish High School in 1967, went to Bellevue Community College for a couple of semesters.
