 Additional Information

What are you doing now:
After having my own Martial Arts School for 10 years, medical issues have forced me into retirement for the last time. 

  

Other Comments:
I had been married 22 years to my wife before we decided to part as friends. We raised 2 fantastic children into adulthood and shared 6 wonderful dogs. She was a Navy Nurse and retired after 25 years of service. We owned our business together for over 10 years before having to close it due to medical issues on my part which forced me into retirement.  I now reside in San Antonio, Texas where I'm closer to my older son and grandaughter.
