I grew up in Maryland and lived there until early 2006. My wife (Cathy) and I lived outside of Annapolis in Severna Park.

Maryland is known as the land of "Pleasant Living". We had a home off the Magothy River on Cypress Creek, one of the many tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay. Our summers were filled with many water related activities, from fishing or spending most summer weekends boating and cruising to different ports of call. The Chesapeake Bay had so many things to offer and we took advantage of it all. Most of our spare time now is spent relaxing by the pool or enjoying the friendship of our neighbors.

After working in the communication field with Verizon for 30 years I took an early retirement. Over the next 4 years I worked various subcontracting jobs for Verizon. They included inspection and placement of their underground fiber system (FIOS). After moving to Florida it was time for a career change.

After being a visitor to the "Sunshine State" for many years it was time to leave the cold weather behind.  Cathy and I moved to Punta Gorda in the spring of 2006 where we reside in the peaceful neighborhood of "Burnt Store Lakes". This is our "Little Piece of Paradise" and we have never regretted our decision to move to SW Florida. We settled on Punta Gorda after seeing how laid back and relaxing the area was.
