Moni-loo, yovos and yovettes. Been a while. It's March 2008 now (I think I wrote this profile back in the late 1990s), and I'm living in Portland, Oregon. I work as Senior Writer/Editor for Mercy Corps, an international relief and development organization. (Go to www.mercycorps.org to read some of my stories, just search by my last name.)
I'm married to Kellie (Porter), who was also a PCV in Togo, and we have one child - a handsome and incredibly cool little three-year-old boy named Asa.
Would love to hear from any of our fellow PCVs.
