I grew up in a small Wisconsin town and went to Catholic schools for twelve years before breaking out at UW-Madison, a.k.a. “hotbed of God-less Communism.” No turning back after that. I moved to Costa Rica, married, had a couple of Costa Rican babies, then returned to live around the United States (Colorado, New Mexico, Massachusetts, California), in China(Shanghai), on a sailboat, and now close to Puerto Vallarta on Mexico’s Pacific coast. During my salaried years, I worked as an English teacher, a job skills trainer, and a human resources manager. Now I am a writer, after selling some articles and a book.
