My past work experience includes working as a computer analyst and as weather observer/forecaster. The latter experience was achieved while serving in the U.S. Navy.



Bio

I am married with 2 adult children. I am the Academic Quiz Bowl team coach.  Last year we won the Jimmy Carter Historic Site Academic Quiz Bowl in Plains, Georgia!  I enjoy golf and computers and like to participate in adventurous experiences such as being able to fly in the Zero-Gravity plane while I experienced weightlessness and travelling to northern Canada to conduct climate research near the Arctic Circle. I am well-travelled (thanks in part to the U.S. Navy and Air Force where my wife served) having spent time living and travelling throughout Asia, England, Australia, and much of the United States.
