Bio: 
I am divorced with one daughter who is a university student in Scotland. I currently work as an Artist although I have many other skills. I owned an engineering business which manufactured speciality humidification equipment for the semiconductor industry. I sold the business in 2000. Following that I attended culinary school and then worked as a chef for a number of years. In 2006 I returned to University to get my Masters Degree in Education. I then taught for several years, mostly in primary education. In my younger days I spent many years traveling the world, often working as I went along. I have traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East. I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in what was then called Zaire, now called The Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Volunteering Experience: 
My first volunteer experience was a kibbutz volunteer in Israel. I first did that at the age of sixteen. I have done that several times for as long as a year. My work was mostly involved with agriculture, picking fruit, working in the cotton fields and at times working in the garage fixing machinery. Of course I also worked at many other jobs around the kibbutz as well. I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Zaire in 1978-1979 in a very small village on the north side of the Congo River at about 2 degrees above the equator. I was sent there to teach auto and truck mechanics but as it turned out I also was required to teach EFL (English as a foreign language) as well. My teaching load turned out to be thirty-eight hours a week! There were of course numerous other needs in the community so I did my best to help out there as well. I worked with local people and a few Chinese Volunteers involved in a local rice project to develop a rice polishing plant and get it up and running. I also went out into the bush with one of the Missionaries on her medical rounds to assist in the treatment of the people in the villages in the surrounding area. There were many other projects I involved myself in during my time in Zaire. Currently I volunteer as an EMR (Emergency Medical Responder, certified) with the town ambulance service (all volunteer) about twenty-five hours per week. we respond to all ambulance calls and we man the ambulance 24 hrs per day.
Education: 
I have a BSBA from Boston University and have almost completed my Master in Ed.
Occupation: 
I am currently an artist.
Other Skills: 
I am skilled in business and management, mechanical engineering, teaching, chef, photography, etc.
I have excellent Entrepreneurial skills. I have many Patents.
