Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
After my Peace Corps service ended, I attended The Ohio State University for a Masters in Computer Science and have been living in Ohio ever since, still working as a computer geek. Enid and I have a daughter Lilia (age 27) and son Nick (age 22) who are the joy of my life and I'm immensely proud of both of them. I've been living in Oxford, OH since 1987. I remarried a wonderful woman, Bonita Porter back in 1996 and I've been living a rather sedate life. However, I still do eventually want to travel down the Amazon River sometime - anyone want to come along? :-)
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
What I experienced during my two years as a volunteer was truly life changing for me. I had the honor of meeting some of the finest and most interesting people there.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone and everyone.
