  2. Hey Scott, this is Krista Cullimore from 30+ years ago at Dynatrornics. My dad was going through his journals the other day and said what ever happened to Scott Simper. I said I didn’t know and googled you…..and here you are. Looks like you are living your dream, that’s so awesome. Both my dad and I would like to say Congratulations and we are so genuinely happy for you. Would love to catch up sometime.
    Wishing the best for you and your family,
    Krista and Kelvyn
