I'm a retired international business consultant and author, living near Landau, Germany with my wife Gisela. For relaxation, I enjoy hiking in the nearby mountains exploring the mideval castles, walking the local vineyards and singing in regional choirs. My career has taken me from my birthplace in the USA to Canada, Europe and the Middle East.
I grew up in York County, Pennsylvania served in the USAF from 1957-61. My business career got underway with the computing sciences division of IBM's service bureau. I later joined an international cosmetic company which took me throughout the USA and into Canada, Greece and Germany.
With international experience and an entrepreneurial spirit, I started my own importing business headquartered in Beirut, Lebanon, for the distribution of cosmetics and toiletries to the Middle East markets. I also functioned as a locator of goods and services sought by Mid-Eastern clients before the civil war in Lebanon destroyed my successful business enterprise. I returned to the United States to start over, and was soon working on an international level once again. My subsequent work involved Swan Technologies, Inc., a personal computer manufacturer in West Germany, and back to the US to work with Stork NV, a Dutch company, supporting a fleet of 1200 Fokker Aircraft.
I am editing and revising my first novel, "To Beirut and Back." I wish to add maps, photos and expand on the book's content. Once done, I will seek publication from a different publisher.
