Here are a few facts about me: I’m a storyteller. I write about adventures, events, and individuals I have encountered as a builder, commercial fisherman, yachtsman, and traveler. There are plenty of scoundrels, righteous folks, free spirits, friends and enemies fighting for page space. Excitement, curiosity, and anticipation will keep you, the reader, on the edge of your chair until the last pages as you laugh, cry, cheer, boo, and reflect on your own life.
I grew up in Seattle, Washington in the fifties, attended St. Edward Seminary, the University of Washington and Stanford University. I began my career as a construction superintendent for Kaiser Engineers, the premier Engineering and Construction Co. on the planet back in the day. I moved on to establish a California branch office for another firm where we built power plants, steel mills, marine facilities, refineries, paper mills, hospital throughout the United States.
Today, Elizabeth and I live in Hawaii with two cats. Writing and spending time with my three son’s families is our current passion. A close second is hanging out at the beach, riding my new mountain bike, checking out the local restaurants and looking for another boat. I still take on the occasional construction project if it challenges me.
