|I am a 60 year old, not so good
computer geek, who used to fly airplanes on the side. I was a Captain
for American Airlines, based in STL, flying the Boeing 767. I am married to a wonderful woman, Bonnie, and have a son, Kent . He is an
actor in Hollywood.
I enjoy golf (12 handicap), computers, airplanes, and just doing nothing when I get a chance....borrrring.
