Bornin Tucson AZ, I was moved overseas at 5 years old, raised and schooled in Switzerland and graduated with an equivalent in Electromechanical Engineering. From 1969 to 1975 I worked in Switzerland in mostly industrial manufacturing plants including one of the nuclear power plants in Switzerland then under construction.
Upon returning to the USA in 1976 I contributed to the success and founded various companies located in the Atlanta area where I lived until 2020. In 2020 my wife and I retired to my new adopted state of North Carolina and finished construction of our retirement home in Marble, NC.
In 1976 I earned my private pilot license and my instrument rating in 1978. I have over 1500 hours in various aircraft including Money 201 & 205SE, Piper PA-32,Velocity XL RG which I built, Cessna 172 & 182. I fly my Cessna 182 N9108G (which I pulled out of the weeds near Anniston AL and rebuilt from the ground up) out of my new base at the Western Carolina Airport KRHP on a regular basis.
