About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be a friendly citizen of the world

ABOUT ME

I, along with my wife enjoy learning and meeting others. We have been in Hilton Head for over 17 years. When our children were at home we had exchange students from many other countries. Additionally, we have hosted many couch surfers. Our children have now completed college and on their own careers. My mother (82) moved in with us 2 years ago. We have 2 small dogs that make friends quickly. I love to travel and usually spend 8 or more weeks a year out of the U.S. I enjoy involvement in medical missions abroad and Emergency Medical Services locally.

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live. Better yet, be a facilitator so that others may have a better and healthier life.
