Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I returned to the States for a year and got married. We lived in Japan for three
years, where my oldest daughter was born. When we returned I taught ESL for a
couple of years at Eastern New Mexico University (and was joined by another
daughter), spent a year as news director at a local radio station, and then
managed a Radio Shack in Clovis for three years. We then moved to Mesa, AZ,
where I worked with mini computers and then joined an environmental
instrument company. I did international sales and field service for 13 years and
had extensive travel to Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
We moved to the San Francisco Bay area last year and I now work for Glacier
Bay, Inc., a builder of efficient refrigeration and insulation systems.
