I grew up in the Washington, DC area.Worked for the U.S.Government. Later was employed @ Occidental Petroleum for Public Affairs. Was in the NAVY reserves serving twice in Germany. Snuck over the Berlin Wall to see East Berlin. Lived in Great Britain for a year. Learned to fly small planes. Loved hot air balloons and flew in a helicopter over the Grand Canyon. I lived in Rhode Island taking water taxis to New England areas. Now on West Coast working and traveling. I feel very lucky to have the experiences through my life. Thank you for your time.
