I have lived in Sarasota since 1998, previously director with major medical products manufacturer in Minnesota. Attained 2-Master's degrees simultaneously. I have four children from a previous marriage:1married, 1-completing Law school, 1 entering Medical school and 1working.   I retired from work following injuries received from hit/run driver while bicycling. Witnessed 1-UFO and at least one spiritual contact. Extensive international and domestic travel. Viking/Bucs football fan; Twins; Yankees baseball fan; Heat/Timber wolves basketball fan; MN-Wild hockey fan. In 54 years I have seen a lot of life, met a lot of people, places and spaces.
Married Dr. Cindy Bailey August 11, 06 in San Francisco after 7 years of courtship. We travel a great deal. Born in Alexandria, LA. Oldest of four kids, undergrad at Grambling State, graduate work at St. Mary's of  Winnona, MN; was a resident Minneapolis (Crystal suburb) MN 24 years. Both parents deceased. Great relationship with my children and former wife.  I have also helped pay college cost for some nephews and nieces. I believe in God/Creator, and evolution.  Emphatically witnessed UFO (hover approximately 500 ft. above us) during daytime in fall of 1972 following dinner while a student (sophomore) at Grambling University, no and ifs or buts about it; we saw it eventually ascend, align in a right angle with what we thought were 2stars, and disappear.  I don't just believe - I know.
