Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:

I have spent several years working in the Bahamas, Florida, Virginia, and now North Carolina. I recently got my Master's degree in Marine Science.

Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:

Some of the best days of my life were spent in Tuvalu, I love my adopted family from Vaitupu, especially Fanoga and Pesiki and all of their kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. I almost married a beautiful girl from Nui but it did not work out. C'est la Vie.

I am doing great these days, married to the love of my life, Rachel, a Trinidadian native. We have two gorgeous girls Eula (4 years) and Dominique (1 year).
