Retired from the U.S. Navy, Submarine Service after 22 years. Traveled to many different countries and states during my career. After retiring from the Navy worked in the IT industry for several large communications firms then started my own consulting and training business. During my travels and after retirement my passion was cooking. I have learned so many different recipes and changed them to improve flavor and texture, then thought how great it would be to provide them to the world. So, I decided to start writing cookbooks. The first is titled: EXOTIC Foods of the World, Appetizers and Dips to Die For, Series 1. I plan to write several cookbooks followed by business books on subject matter that I was involved in when I had my own business.
I was born in Chicago, IL, but grew up in Miami, FL. My parents were involved in carnival business, so I traveled to many states while growing up. I went into the Navy when I turned 18 years of age.
