A lot of times when I meet blog readers in person, they ask if they can know a little more about me.  I had never really thought about it, but I don’t really have too much information about my past on any of my blogs, so I thought maybe I should post something here.

I am 45, having been born in 1962, I moved to the Philippines at age 38.  My first trip to the Philippines came at the age of 28, when I married my wife, Feyma in 1990.  Feyma is my first and only wife, as I am also her first and only husband.  We have three kids of our own, all boys, and a girl which is adopted (our niece).  My kids range in age from 15 years old, down to 6 years old.

What is a 13A Visa

I have lived all over the world, to an extent.  During my childhood, my father worked for a company that liked to transfer him all over the place.  I have lived in the USA, South Africa and the Philippines.  Within the USA, I have lived in Washington State, Oregon, California, New York, Louisiana and Montana.  So, I’ve been around a little bit!  Here in the Philippines, I have lived in General Santos City and Davao City.

As for working, I consider myself to be an entrepreneur.  But, in the past most of my work history has been in the retail trade, in store management and sales, primarily.  I have also worked in the electronics business and in Silicon Wafer manufacturing.  My last job before coming to live in the Philippines was in the Silicon Wafer business.  In addition, I have also authored around a half dozen books, primarily on the topics of ham or amateur radio and also shorwave radio listening.

That’s a little about me, in case you’ve been curious.  If there are things that I didn’t touch on, don’t hesitate to ask, I am happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Bob, I am back in the U.S.. My heart though is in my home there in Davao (14 Jade). Marlou and I want to thank you and your wife for the hospitality and wonderful lunch at Hanoi's. I hope that in the future we will have the opportunity to see you and your family again. Marlou is still there and for now we are still going to move forward with bringing her here to live. I have come to the conclusion that she needs to get this out of her thoughts and return as soon as we can. One never… Read more »

Interesting to know you wrote about ham radio topics. I may have encountered one of your writings. It's me again, 73.

Hi Ross – if you are a ham, it's quite possible that you've seen some of my books. My best sellers were the Repeater MapBook which was published by Artsci; and the North American Repeater Atlas, published by ARRL.

Have you met Art Bell the former and occasional host of coast to coast AM radio? He has a Filipina wife and a kid. He is also living in the PH. Just a thought.

Hi jonathan – Indeed, I have met Art Bell before. His wife is from Bukidnon! Art used to live in the Philippines, but he no longer does, though.

Is that so? Maybe he just go around for a visit because I was able to listen to one of his broadcast this year for coast to coast and he said he was in a condo tower in Makati. I’m a fan btw of coast to coast, any chance that you may be a guest on that show? Boy, that would be the day!
