I am a transplanted Yankee (Newark N.J.) living in San Antonio Texas since 1977. I am a Vietnam War veteran with service in Thailand, and have been a school teacher, a V.P. of a large wholesale plumbing supply company, a self-employed salesman, an administrator of a large non-profit organization and now an administrator for an engineering consulting company.
In addition to these career positions, I worked as a substitute teacher, truck driver, factory worker, newspaper delivery boy, parking-lot attendant, and clerk in an old-time drug store. Jack of many trades and a master of a few.
I have put in many-many hours as a volunteer for various organizations helping the hungry and homeless, working for United Way and San Antonio Blood Bank. I am also a cancer survivor, more about that some other time. Since early in 2011 I have lost over 30 pounds and started a walking regime which includes a 5K walk several times a month, have participated in the 2012 and 2013 Texas Senior Games (not old people fooling around) and several charity 5K events.
I have been a member of the Sun Poets Society of San Antonio since 2004 and have had several pieces published on-line. In addition, I have had several non-fiction articles published during my time as a non-profit administrator.
