About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Spread happiness though food, drink, and conversations.

ABOUT ME

When traveling, I'm very outgoing and more than willing to start up a conversation just to chat with travelers. Some may find that annoying but I love meeting people and getting to know someone. I really enjoy new adventures and enjoy traveling with my wife Lynn as we circumnavigate the world. Most say I'm a cross between being kind-hearted and just plain goofy.

I spent 20+ years as an accountant but when we moved from Atlanta, GA, I followed my passion of making frozen treat and it has evolved into a business of making healthy all natural fruit popsicles and not so healthy chocolates and confectionaries. If you stay with us, be prepared to be a guinea pig for new and interesting popsicle flavors.

When I'm not traveling and hosting, I'm laid back and more than willing to pour you a couple fingers of scotch, whiskey, beer, or a simple coffee and discuss our adventures overseas. I'm American while my wife is Singaporean and we've seen more than 60 countries between the two of us. We're open-minded and very easy going.

Mainly fantasy fiction but enjoy a good historical book as well. I met Lynn when I used to teach Salsa dancing lessions so I'm into Latin music as well.

Iguazu Falls, Argentina/Brazil - standing on top of a waterfall looking up into the Devil's Throat from the Brazil side.
