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 work abroad to contracting to rescue to teaching to consulting.  In my personal time, I find opportunities in everyday circumstances to better the lives of others, even if it is simply a smile.  I live by a code.  Be dependable.  What is worth doing, is worth doing well.  Leave a person, place or thing in better condition than you found them.  Favorite subjects of life-long interest for study are chemistry, biology, botany, horticulture, medicine, ecology, culture, history, government, public policy, strategy, and operations.
