My name is Rags. I have been involved in Rocketry since 1962 when I was 8 yrs. old. My first rocket was built in the dim light of the television set while watching the Mercury-Atlas Launch that carried John Glen around the world! I remember that it was February 20, 1962.


​   I am 69 years old and retired currently living in the Austin, Texas area.

I am now a member of AARG.

   In the past I was President of the Dallas Area Rocket Society (DARS). Then moving to the Oklahoma City area I have been the founder and President of the Piedmont Area Rocket Club (PARC) both are National Association of Rocketry (NAR) chapters.
 I am a long standing member of both NAR and Tripoli rocket organizations.
