Comments:

It's been a blessing to see that everyone is doing well after 30 years.

After graduating from Mckinley Tech in 79', I attended Minneapolis College of Art and Design in Minneapolis, Minnesota for 2 years. After that, I came closer to home and finished with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Maryland College of Art in Baltimore with a major in graphic design and minor in photography.

I stayed in the area for awhile and worked at DC General Hospital as a visual information specialist. I later moved to California which inspired my entrepreneur aspirations and catching the travel bug. I traveled through England, Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Spain, Mexico, Australia and more to go if God willing. I found myself literally lost but able to find my way out. I remember looking for a friends place in Paris but asking directions from French Transvestites. Having known French a little, being that it was about 12 midnight made me speak faster than ever. There's so many funny stories. It's been a fun ride after 30 years and even more now that I have kids now along with my current wife for 8 years. I have been able to stay in touch with my brother Wayne "Ziggy" Linsey in LA. I'm still the silly, drummer and artist you remember from Tech. Some things don't change. Life is short. God wants us to enjoy it. I'm Looking forward to seeing you all.

School Story:

My best memories from Tech was playing the drums in the marching band, attending the Penn Center, hanging out in the G.O, and of course being the laugh of the GONG SHOW with my boy Joe "JD" Walker. We dressed up in 65" shirt and pants and performed "Mista Bubble". Those were the days. Simply Priceless.....
