Some of my background
Hello. I am new to VT but have been traveling since I was born. My father was an engineer in the missle business (we lived near Cape Canaveral during the Mercury program and we moved every 8-12 months while I was growing up). Because of these travels and the exposure to so many different ethnic groups I wanted to be an archealogist but ended up being an engineer. However, later would be able to investigate and learn other cultures through travels. Got out of USAF and worked in LA as scientist and flight test manager before going to Purdue as ass't professor. Went to work at American Airlines as pilot/instructor. This fit into my travel love as I flew all over USA, North & South America and Europe. I am retired from flying now due to a serious accident a few years ago. Now I am a rehab counselor working in rehabiliation and research ino brain injury diagnosis and effectiveness of rehabilitation techniques. I shall be happy to discuss this further if you wish. This photo was taken in Missouri with my Dad and Taffy, my dog.
