ABOC - Optician
Hugh is an ABO certified optician, and while technically not a native, he hopes you don’t hold being an Army brat against him. His love affair with Montana started in the second grade at the old East Side School. It carried on through childhood and all the way to Montana State University, where he was an accomplished filmmaker and fencer. After receiving a film degree, he became a US Army trained optician, and saw the world.
After pit stops in South Carolina, Virginia, Washington, California, and Germany as a luthier, soldier, and actor, he’s finally back home. If not here he can be found working on his old childhood home, waxing poetic on a stage, flying on the back of his motorcycle, or anywhere he can still find a functioning Street Fighter cabinet.
