was first hired by Nicky Mays after I regularly won the max jumbos every day.then did milkcan, tag balloons,bottleup,then worked for Donny Rollo,eventually became a games manager.,i have some great memories of going to #6 in Toronto just about every night after close and playing crib til we had to open and when we were in Mobile Alabama and Steve got so drunk he parallel parked himself in a parking stall outside a bar at like 2am and the troopers pulled up and said if we didn,t get him up he was going to jail, the owner of the bar came out and said don't worry if you guys want to keep drinking I have a place to put, and we took him to a cot in the back room.I never really kept in touch but I have fond memories of lots of people,Donny,Dave,Steve,Derek,Donny Larson and his wife and daughters,Binzer,Terry, and even Greg Gravelle who always treated me well. WOW I could go on for a long time, but suffice to say it was a great time in my life...

My time with the CNE was awesome. I worked on the Polar Bear Express and while the music of Aerosmith with be pounding in the air me and my buddy Grudge would be pounding girls in the back!!!! I got so much pussy and it was the greatest time of my life until i lost my leg in a tractor trailer accident in New Brunswick......I also got quite an expensive heroin addiction as well from the Conklin Shows. But what a LIFE!!!!!

I was the only kid I think that didn't want to grow up and have the police man, fireman dream. I had the work for the carnival dream. Met Barry Jamieson and Steve Choate when I was maybe 11 years old, helped them lay out the lot year after year and work as a local, always telling them that someday I'm gonna travel with you guys.Finally later on in the 90's I finished my schooling and went on the road to still be there today, moving rides and also I own a couple games now as well, which covers the gas with the prices in the last couple seasons!

Friend Don asked me what I was doing for the summer. Told him nothing, said come with me. We got in his car, drove to the sign up line in Brantford. Stood in line, had my picture taken, was told to return the next day. Next day I was on my way west. Met a lot of great people. Worked on the Casino, Wild Rat and the Scrambler.
