Greetings to Everyone,

I am a retired Franchisor, Business Consultant, Philanthropist and I run a Think Tank, as well as do a lot of Traveling, Writing, Cycling, Flying, Volunteering & enjoy life to the fullest. Have dabbled in local and regional politics. No Religion.

Over Achiever Family

Most of our ancestors came over on the Mayflower. I am the grandson of a Nuclear Physicist at (SLAC) who wrote 70 research papers (applied science). My Dad; Naval Aviator and jet pilot (250 combat missions, CO of a Navy Jet Squadron) also airline and corporate. My Mom would have been an Olympic Swimmer, but had me instead. Brother is a former high-end coffee house entrepreneur and was a USMC C-130 pilot. Sister has been a property manager for almost 3-decades.

Former Franchising Founder

Myself, I am 46 and now a retired entrepreneur (Franchisor Car Washing Sector). In my business endeavors, I participated in over 20-industries including; Auto, Trucking, Aviation, Energy, Construction, Oil, Real Estate. I give speeches on business topics, consult and offer my advice for free to start-up entrepreneurs. Just trying to give back to the world that has given me so much.

In Early Retirement Presently

Since retirement I have traveled to every city in the United States over 10,000 in population. I still travel quite a bit. In retirement, I run the Online Think Tank and do a "little" writing as you can see? In my younger days I was a runner "miler" in track. I have dabbled in politics, been involved in philanthropy, community groups & raised money for the common good; and committed to a lifetime of learning.

Thirst for Knowledge

Thus, I own a 3,500 plus title library & write on many subjects. I wish all online article writers continued success in the digital age, & believe; "You are in the right place at the right time, congratulations on your excellent timing!" My goal is to have completed 55 eBooks by 2012.

What do I like to do?

Well, I enjoy meeting interesting people, engaging in intellectual discourse, dialogue, discussion and debate in coffee shops, online, phone & email. I'd love to hear from you, so drop me an email to introduce yourself. Chances are pretty good that we will disagree on some of the issues, but hey, that's cool. So, shoot me an email;
