I don't know what people get so excited about. I'm a pretty
ordinary guy. OK, I wear a Utilikilt
most of the time, but what's so odd about that? Women wear jeans and
slacks, guys wear kilts. No, it's not a dress!

Where Kilted Men Meet
I got married to wonderful woman back on April 12th 2K3.
It was a typical wedding with pirates, fire performers, a Dominatrix
and a Klingon among others. What, you didn't have a Klingon at your
wedding? Too bad for you.
My Uncle Phil's wife Cat (in Klingon gear); my wife Sherri's sister
Stacy (who officiated the wedding); Sherri,me; my brother, Ben; Sherri's
daughter, Hannah and Sherri's other daughter, Dylan
Dylan and I closed out the ceremonies with a fire spinning routine.
Sherri and I also do the Burning
Man thing. We're both Rangers.
I'm a Shift Lead and she's in Eschelon.
Rangers Rigged and Crow planning security for the "Beyond
Belief" Flambe' Lounge at the Crucible in Oakland, CA. Is that
Ranger Knothead? Where's his hat?
I also have a 13-year-old son named Nicholas who lives
with his mother. I see him when I can (he's too independent these days
to want to hang out with a boring old fart like me)
I enjoy photography and my musical tastes range from Debussy
to Marilyn Manson. I was editor-in-chief of the school newspaper at
City College last year. I studied for and received a Certificate
of Completion in Multimedia Digital Arts. You can see some of my work
on the Portfolio page. Currently, I'm taking EMT training to increase
my knowledge as a First Aid instructor and Event First Aid practitioner.
Like I said, I'm a pretty ordinary guy.
Here's what I'm doing when I'm not kilted:
Rigged rappelling from the Dumbarton Bridge during
Urban Search and Rescue training - 2005
I have a very cooul brother though. Ben Ramsey is a filmmaker.
He wrote "The
Big Hit" and produced "Love
And A Bullet" from his Hollywood production company, Ramcity
Productions. He also produced an animated film, "The
Contract" which is the backstory to "Love And A Bullet."
