Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
After the Peace Corps, I travelled throughout Central and South America. Returned to California briefly to conduct plant surveys and earn some real money. In 1992, I moved to Puerto Rico to manage 3 wildlife refuges for the US Fish and Wildlife Service. I spent 12 years working in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Besides working as a refuge manager, I also held positions as a wildlife biologist and environmental educator.
I am currently working in Honolulu, hawaii for the same agency as an information and education specialist.
Concerning my personal life - I was briefly married (4 years) resulting in no children and a dislike for Canadians. I am currently single and enjoying life in the Pacific.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I miss the simplicity of Peace Corps life and the friends I made.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I would love to hear from the Olancho gang and any of the other derelicts that I hung out with. I would love to reestablish contact with those that have drifted away over the years.
