Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I have worked primarily as a teacher of French, ESL and Music. I recently became a published author (Sacred Night, 2003, Nightengale Press) and am a landscape and waterscape artist working in acrylics. I continue to teach, but have also worked in the travel industry, founded a non-profit organization (Overseas Alliance)taking students to and from France on enxchanges in the summer during the 1980's. In the 90's I had a music business, and released an album, worked as a singer and songwriter in Chicago and the Midwest, and wrote and tried to produce a musical play.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
The Peace Corps was a defining experience in my life, as a teacher and as a writer.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone who served in Togo from 1969-1971.
