My wife is from Suriname, South America, and we enjoy our family of three children and four grandchildren who also live near us in Gray, LA.

I am retired from a chemicals manufacturing facility located near New Orleans, Louisiana.

I had been inactive as a ham for a number of years but have recently become active again on many of the bands.
