Bio: Born and raised in Detroit, MI. Retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in 2002 after 30 yrs of active service. I'm splitting residences between Alexandria, VA (DC area) & Sydney, NS Canada. Currently my job is senior vice president for leadership development with NewDay USA. I love people...and live with passion by the words to the song by Louie Armstrong, "What a Wonderful World!" Life is like a song... pick one, and there's a story in it about me. My personal core values are people, passion and performance.
