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.
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.
