I live and work near a "volcanic bubble" in the heart of East Portland called Mt. Tabor.  I grew up at the base of it's tree covered hills in the 1970's & 80's, and have not moved far since. I graduated from Franklin High School in 1985, attended college for two years, and one day in 1990 got my hands on a computerized engraving system. I was hooked...

Today I work with state-of-the-art laser cutting and engraving machines, and they are amazing  systems.

 Me and my gal! Her encouragement continually motivates me and her spirit brightens my world!

My old boss and her best friend gave me the opportunity to learn and grow with the small business they created back when I was in my early 20's.  There was no internet, and the fax machine and laser printer were emerging technologies.  No cell phones, no drones overhead, Clinton, Bush...

My very first customer  Polliwog Learning Products  is a cool Oregon business owned by my sister Michele. Without Polliwog, Bullfrog would have struggled mightily in the first years, and might not have taken off at all!  Thank you, sweet sister.
