Became a psychoanalyst and now work in an alternative high school in addition to a private practice in NJ and NYC. I am married with two wonderful girls.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was by far the most formative two years of my life. It never ceases to amaze me how the experience continues to grow for me. I only hope that Salone has withstood the publicized horrors with dignity and strength. My prayers to all involved.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Any RPCVs who were in Sierra Leone during the mid to late 80's. I am also wondering what may have happend to Marwan Bahsoon, a Lebonese businessman who was a great friend to numerous PCVs.
