About the Author

I am a practical thinker who likes to learn from other people's successes and mistakes.  I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management and spent 20 years in the business.  I have been self employed, a mortgage lender, and currently working in the Hospital Services field as a courier. 

I live in Arizona with my wife, Anne. We also have three fur babies.  Cooper, who is a Golden Retriever, Simon, who is a rescued cat, and Millie, who is also a rescued All American dog. 

I love the outdoors, good food, and helping others make good choices.
