Welcome! To tell you a little about myself, I have dedicated my life to education and protecting the lives of others in both my work and personal time. There is no higher calling. In my career, I have practiced this principle in a number of contexts - from service abroad to teaching to aquatic rescue. In my personal time, I find opportunities in everyday circumstances to better the lives of others. Favorite subjects of life-long interest for study are chemistry, biology, botany, horticulture, medicine, ecology, culture, history, government, public policy and military strategy, operations and tactics.
Hope you enjoy the site!
