The California state Capitol. Old Californian Hotel in Sacramento. The Marshall Hotel in Sacramento. The Hotel Berry in Sacramento. The Hotel Berry Coffee Shop.

California State Capitol
Heading to Sacramento on the Greyhound bus with Kalousdian for a weekend of debauchery became a weekly routine.

The Old Californian Hotel
Another “den of iniquity”. It was torn down in 1990 to make way for a new library.

The Marshall Hotel
Located at 7th and L Streets where we met the girls. My favorite was Bobbie.

Hotel Berry in Sacramento

The coffee shop in the Hotel Berry Where Kalousdian and I often had great Tamale dinners.

Below is some of my work from my days in the Comproller's Office at Travis AFB.


Comptroller Digest at Travis AFB
A primary mission of the Comptroller Office was publishing the Comptroller Digest. It was a compilation of statistics involved in running an air base. My job was to use my illustrative skills to enhance the presentation of the statistics – I did very well at the job.
