A few years ago after a modestly successful career in the building industry that spanned three decades I returned to my first passion of writing and journalism. My wife and I are empty nesters and have split recent years between living in our north Georgia Applachian mountain home and our Florida home. We now reside full time in my native Florida.
I am a Vietnam veteran and earned my much belated BA from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg. I enjoy motorcycles, boats and spending time with family and friends.
I have been a staff writer at a central Florida countywide newspaper for two years and have been published as a freelance reporter and columnist in more than ten major newspapers and a few weekly papers over the last ten years. Today, I contribute to Digital Journal as often as possible.
DJ attracted me because it has a global cast of writers and I enjoy learning about the many countries and places I have not visited.
