Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I came back to the USA 36 years ago and have never used RPCV status as a professional start-point or frame of reference, although it clearly has been a major factor in my general outlook. I have been a corporate executive in the Computer industry since getting an MBA in 1968. More than half of my post PC work-life has been lived outside the USA, and I currently operate my own business, in San Jose, California.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
The volunteer is the greatest beneficiary. Hopefully, each volunteer is also able to make a meaningful contribution to the host country in some way.
