After years of traveling the world (from Alaska to Antarctica), Mark and I have decided we'd like to take a closer look at Central and South America.
Jodi is an accomplished nature / travel photographer and recently retired designer in the high tech industry. You can see some of her travel and nature photos on jodis_journeys.
Mark, one of the nicest humans you'll ever meet, is a tennis coach and retired sales executive. Staying active and keeping the people in his life happy is his daily goal.
We have been married since 1973 and have known each other since age 7, having grown up as neighbors. We've lived in the same Southern California home since 1981and have managed rental property for as many years.
Jodi is a lifelong lover of all things in nature and is very knowledgeable about domestic pets and wild things equally. Before she fell into an awesome design career (quite by accident), her plans were to be a veternarian. Her creative side apparently had other plans.
Mark spent several years in the Navy before going into the insurance business where he ran his own agency for 45 years until his retirement this year. The Navy taught him to always be neat and tidy and the ability to eat just about anything.
We are both non-smokers and honest level-headed people who make common sense decisions. Our motto is to return anything given to us in better shape than when we received it. A belief we instilled in our two kids who are now thriving adults in their 30s.
