SCUBA diving, sea kayaking, running, walking


I left my 15-year sales career shortly after my personal Welcome Home parade (Feb, '99) and completed a transition to the world of Training. Around 1988 I began to recognize that an ideal career for me should I never have to work for money would be teaching middle school kids how to solve puzzles. Not how to solve a particular puzzle, but how to think about solving puzzles when faced with them. Sounds like life, doesn't it? In the 4th career, started in 1999, I'm now teaching adults how to solve problems. Amazing.

I started this site for my 1st Radio Battalion band of brothers in 2003.
