 Additional Information

What are you doing now:
I'm currently a Marketing Consultant and the Marketing and Sales Manager for Best Fire Equipment company based in Napa, CA.  The company provides Fire Extinguisher and Fire and Life Safety equipment service, sales and training to homes and businesses in the Northern California Wine Country.

I was formerly a membership screener for a California/Oregon based Hunting, Fishing and Camping Club:
Wilderness Unlimited.  
Now I'm just a member again.  The club is a private, screened, family membership club that leases private ranches for hunting, fishing and camping.


Other Comments:
In my spare time, I do as much hunting and fishing and camping as possible, mostly on Wilderness Unlimited properties.  I also spend some time reloading and target shooting. 

I took up a new hobby  a couple of years ago - Fly Fishing - I should never have done that ... it's a terribly addictive hobby .
