Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Returned to teach biology in high-schools, then on to graduate school at U. Georgia for MS and PhD degrees in population biology/population genetics; from there to Madison, WI, where I continue to reside and where I obtained a law degree after which I had my own patent and other intellectual law practice for 10 years. This I closed last year (2008) to take some time off before moving on to other endeavors -- as yet undecided.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I wish I had stayed to serve my full term, but what are you going to do about it now? I may yet return -- who knows?
Any message for returned volunteers?:
I'd love to hear from any RPCV's from Zaire, especially those who were in training with me (then known as Pat Smith) in Kivu the summer of 1975.
