Born on January 14, 1950. My teenage years were misspent playing music in a rock and roll band and I played music professionally until my late 20's. During this time, I obtained a pilot's license and spent as much time as I could with my head in the clouds. After leaving music, I became a teacher and taught math and computers for eleven years. From teaching, I became an assistant principal and finally, a principal at a middle school. I worked for the school district for thirty five years before retiring in 2011. My wife of 43 years and I have two beautiful daughters who are both successful at what they do. We spend most of our time in Lakeland, Florida but we also find time to stay in our condo near Cocoa Beach.
