Spent my childhood growing up on the banks of the Mississippi River boating, swimming, & fishing. Graduated in '79 from Quincy High in Quincy, Illinois. Moved to Daytona Beach in 1981. Needed more income & made a move to the big city of Orlando in 1985. Sold timeshare til 1990 then became a chauffeur. Burned out of the limo biz in 1999 & set sail to Pompano Beach. Gotta love tropical South Florida! Dabbled in the Real Estate industry here for awhile...& loved running an Art Gallery where I sold "Art of the Islands" pieces barefoot (but all good things come to an end). Gallery was closed due to the economy. I'm currently performing BPO's for local banks from home now (computer work...valuing foreclosures) & live 1 blk. from the beach where I plan to spend my "Golden Years".
