Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I became a computer programmer, working in Washington, DC. Then I worked four years for Oracle all around the US. I moved to Barcelona, Spain in 1999 and stayed until 2004. I married a lady from Spain and we have a little boy together, born in 2001. I moved to New Orleans, then evacuated from Katrina in 2005 to Philadelphia. In 2007 we moved back to DC, where I work for FEMA.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I miss the experience, and wish I had done things a lot differently.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Any RPCVs. I'm in touch with a couple of folks from the host country already.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Keep going. Life becomes quite ordinary if you don't keep it up.
