Student, Soldier, Mountaineer, Father, Pilot, Author, Sailor.
I am extroverted, Intuitive, Assertive, and Love to Think. I guess I’m the ultimate devil’s advocate. But sometimes that will come off as being argumentative.
I am a single parent who raised my 2 youngest teenage boys, Alex and Cody. My oldest son Matt is married. He and his wife are the proud parents of my grandsons, Lucas and Jayce.
I was an infantry officer in the US Army, traveled extensively as an international mountaineering guide, ran for the US House of Representatives, been imprisoned for civil disobedience, been shot at, drank some beer and was present when the fat lady sung.
I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and an MA in theology. I am an adventure junkie at heart. I love to travel, ski, camp, hike, mountain bike, Tae Kwon Do, mountain climb and sailing!
I owned a flight school, where Matt and I taught aerobatics, unusual attitude recovery techniques and tailwheel endorsements. Flying is in my DNA, but so is sailing. I am now on a sabbatical journey completing a world circumnavigation sailing trip that commenced in Fall 2017 from Mexico.
