Art experience started early in Ron's life and consisted mainly of pigmented
wax skillfully applied to painted sheetrock. After his parents found out,
he quickly began searching for less painful ways of self-expression.
A few years later, 24 to be exact, the time was ripe for designing a
badly needed font. This 5 by 7 matrix masterpiece became the cornerstone
of a homemade Z80-based terminal. Together with a new wife and a homemade 300 baud modem
it was no longer necessary to stand in line at the university computing
facility waiting for a terminal to become available.
Having survived the test of time, oh yeah ... and the
Heathkit dot matrix printer obnoxiously chattering away in the bedroom
in the wee hours of the morning, we find Ron (left) pictured
with his wife (right) above.
The font designer (the one on the left ...) gained
extensive font experience while porting the *nix program
troff to the DOS/LaserJet PCL environment.
Thanks Ralph P. for the guidance ... you're an engineer's engineer.
