Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Well, in a nutshell, upon returning to the U.S. I did a masters in Food and
Resource Economics at the University of Florida. There were 8 or 10 of us
in the department who were ex-PC Philippines during the same period
('76-'79). Florida was followed by a couple of years with the U.S. Soil
Conservation Service in Missouri. USAID offered me an assignent back in
Manila so back we came. After a year or so I joined the Asian
Development Bank in 1985 and have been here ever since. My work at
ADB has involved the processing and administration of agricultural and
microfinance projects in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, PRC, Indonesia, Mongolia
and the Philippines. My wife Virgie and I will be celebrating our 23rd
anniversary this year. I'm sure she is fondly remembered by many
ex-PCVs from the Philippines as the best nurse they've ever met. We
have 2 great "ankle biters" - Leila (19)and Jason (16).
