Life in New Mexico has been even better than life before.
After a career in the United States Air Force (retired in 1989)
and work in the non-profit field in the area of disabilities, I
worked as a volunteer in theater set construction.
In 2008, two momentous events happened to change my
life. I met the woman who has since become my wife, and
I appeared on the stage as an actor for the first time, as the
Conductor in The Music Man.
In 2015 we moved to New Mexico, where I wrote my first play, became Co-Facilitator of the Playwrights Circle, and published my first children's book. I've since written one
more full-length play and several short plays. In 2019, my one-act play A Way Back was produced by Theatre Ensemble Arts in Farmington, NM.
Carolyn and I, as Co-Producers, have revived Flower and Bone Productions, a theatrical production company devoted to producing plays by New Mexican playwrights or set in New Mexico.
I have introduced Carolyn to skydiving, sailplane flying, and the joy of having a dog. She took me on my first whitewater rafting adventures, including a 3-day trip on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.
Life continues to be an adventure! Never too old to have fun . . .
