A little bit about me…

I have been to the South Pole, conducted Search And Rescue operations from Antarctica to the Mojave Desert, performed minor surgery, taught people to fly helicopters and designed complex software solutions.

My family and I currently live in Bandera, TX.

For the first half of 2013 we lived on our sailboat S/V Shannon and cruised the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands.

I enjoy helping people find creative solutions to their problems, designing software solutions, writing, photography, sailing and blacksmithing .

To see a little of our cruising adventure take a look at Route To Cruising.
