I started working in Alaska in 1994, and moved to Unalaska in 1996.  As a native Texan, I had always wanted to live in Alaska, with its truly wide open spaces.  Unalaska quickly became home in my heart, even though the initial plan was for two years.  I came for the land, but stayed because of the people.
