About Me
I grew up in rural Wisconsin many years ago, joined the Navy when I was just 17, and served 22 years as a Medic during the Viet Nam conflict. I graduated from the University of Maryland; University of New York State, and Tampa College upon retirement. Worked for icons in our country; Ross Perot; Price, Waterhouse, Coopers; The Home Shopping Network and many others in various capacities. I've loved my work and life so far, but find that retirement has become my biggest challenge to date.
