Hello, I spent almost twenty three years in the US Army and lived many places across the USA, Europe and Asia. After retiring six years ago I moved to Florida and completed several degrees along with my commercial, multi-engine and instrument flight ratings. I am currently working on a Masters degree in aviation.
After moving every several years for most of my adult life I grew to appreciate experiencing new people & places. For me, this is as important as formal education for providing perspective & context to life. I plan to do some writing/blogging and try to learn something new each place I visit and explore.
My military and other experiences over the years have been quite diverse and I am comfortable in just about any situation. I have lived in conditions ranging from war zones to beach-side residences. I can deal easily with most common problems but also know when/who to call for professional help. My friends and family include: house builders, electricians, farmers/gardeners, medical professionals...and much more. I am a life-long critter lover and have cared for many types of small, domestic animals. My experience with larger farm animals is more limited but I am a quick study. Very computer/electronics savvy and have driven everything from Army Tanks to motorcycles and small aircraft, and, originally being from New Hampshire, I can handle shovels and snow-blowers too.
