Growing up in Oklahoma, Lenny was born in Altus, spending K-12 in Enid. Lenny was a member of the Enid YMCA swim team from early grade school through Jr. High. While his best stroke was Butterfly, he dropped the sport in his sophmore year of high school when he broke his arm in gym class. He began learning guitar in grade school, playing for church youth groups throughout his school years. Interested in electronics, he procured his Novice amateur radio license (WN5RJS). Though not a particularly sterling academic, he managed to graduate from Enid High School in 1976.Lenny began his working career as an Avionics Technician in the U.S. Navy. Over the course of his 10-year career he advanced from technician to instructor to supervisor, leaving the Navy as an AT1 (AW).
He worked for a year as a radio broadcast engineer (KGB-FM/KPOP-AM). While he enjoyed the job, the lack of pay and benefits led him to accept an offer from Motorola (for which he had been providing contract programming and product development services).
Lenny joined Motorola in late 1986 as a Project Manager in San Diego. A promotion to Group Leader resulted in relocation to Foster City (San Francisco Bay area).

He took the (CGISS) Western Division Information Manager's position in 1994. In 2000 he assumed the role of Desktop Services Manager, U.S. (CGISS). With the outsourcing of computing services to Computer Sciences Corporation, Lenny made a move back into Motorola's Program Management in February 2003.

Lenny resides in the Clairemont-area of San Diego with his wife Claire and their daughter Kyrstin (when she's home from college at Dickinson State University). Lenny's off-hours pursuits include music in the band Lethal Rejection, (playing guitar, bass guitar, and drums) as well as the small mobile DJ enterprise he operates with his wife. Additionally, Lenny is active in web site design (his daughter's former softball league), as well as part-time involvement in the radio broadcast industry (Clear Channel), where he serves as studio engineer/technical director of the San Diego Chargers radio broadcasts. Lenny also works occasionally as a part-time sports and event photographer, both independently and for other photographers throughout San Diego.
