I am retired from a career in the automobile business, where I worked for both manufacturers and as the general manager of several large mega-dealerships.
My wife, Dianne, is retired from the computer business, most recently working for IBM as a project manager on projects worldwide.

I am a passionate adventurer. In my youth I hitchhiked around the world. In midlife Dianne and I spent two years sailing the Gulf of Mexico and the Bahamas. We continue to alternate motorhome and long-distance sailing trips.
I enjoy hiking, biking, swimming, and snorkeling and am an accomplished spear fisherman. I also enjoy helping sailors and motorhomers with my mechanical expertise.
