About

Shippy Hollow

Shippy Hollow is the place we've called home since moving here to Stevenson, WA from Seattle in 1997. It got it's name from Pat's grandparents - Floyd & Hazel Shippy - who lived in the home for 60 years prior to their deaths in the middle 90's. When Pat & I moved here, we thought we'd be hermits in a small town. We quickly discovered that this place is full of like-minded and wonderfully bent people. Probably because of the Hollow's proximity to the greater downtown area of Stevenson, it became a gathering spot for many of the aforementioned crazies. 

I began thinking about doing a site like this about a year ago when I purchased a new Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) and started composing music again (after a hiatus of nearly 20 years). The thought of combining my music with my glorified snaphots was finally realized when I switched computer platforms to a Mac and bought a video editing program called Final Cut Pro X in March 2016. The videos will be collections of pics from a particular event (or, yes, vacations at the beach with the wife & kids). My intent is that the music will be composed specifically for each video.

Now that Pat & I are "semi-retired" from our design business (Rock Cove Design), there will be some time available to work on these things. I do hope you enjoy. And as most of you reading this are part of the Stevenson Clan, thank you for being part of our family. You mean the world to us.
