Current Residence:   Lake Placid, FL

Occupation:   I attended Embry-Riddle and graduated in Dec 1973.  I sprayed cotton in the summer, taught flying in the winter, became a corporate pilot for two years, then joined American Airlines in 1976.  I am a captain for AA arriving there through the buyout of TWA.  I tried the Army Reserves for two years but it took too much time and I didnít like garrison duty.

Family:   I married Karen in 1974 and we have 3 boys (27, 19 and 16) and a daughter in law.  The boys are athletes and much of our time involves swimming, lacrosse, track and football.  The two youngest boys are also adept at some acrobatic flying.

Hobbies:  I enjoy flying and have a partnership in an RV-8 sports plane that can go straight up twisting like a corkscrew.    Golf?  I hope to break 100 one day.
