Hello. I am an Orlando area Realtor.
I am also a proud U.S. Navy Veteran who completed two consecutive tours from August of 1966 to May of 1969 flying combat missions out of the U.S. airbase at Danang, Vietnam. I flew over a hundred reconnaissance sorties over South Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia and completed 135 night strike missions over North Vietnam. To this day I am eternally grateful to the men I flew and fought next to, some who will never return… and who will never be forgotten.
As any veteran who has actually been in combat will tell you, the ones that didn’t make it back are the only true heros and the rest of us were not better at what we did… just very fortunate.
I am now a lifetime member of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW); a current member of the American Legion in Winter Park and am now considered a “mature” individual. I have been a Realtor® since 2013. My wife and I live in Orlando near UCF where we occasionally play host to some of our 6 children and 6 grandchildren.
I am an alumni of Kansas University (Aerospace Engineering and International Marketing). Prior to entering real estate, I spent 35+ years as a senior executive and consultant specializing on opening new international markets with several worldwide high-technology companies. Besides my time in the Navy, I’ve been employed by or consulted for:Xerox (U.S.); Telxon (U.S. & Latin America); Symbol Technologies (U.S.); Fujitsu (Japan & Latin America); Sumitomo Bank (Japan & Asia); Venture Manufacturing (Singapore, Far East, Australia and Europe); Baracoda (France & North America); and several others, signing government and private sector contract manufacturing and high-tech service agreements in 37 countries within 4 continents initially worth over $15B. I also founded a telecommunications company right after the breakup of AT&T in the mid-80’s and built three international long distance switching centers through the hard work of more than 150 direct employees, a company that was eventually merged with Worldcom (MCI).
I have the following official Realtor®designations: Orlando area Gold Key Realtor®; Graduate Realtor Institute® (GRI); Senior Real Estate Specialist® (SRES); Florida Military Specialist (FMS); Military Relocation Professional® (MRP); Certified Negotiation Expert® (CNE) and Real Estate Staging Expert (RESE).
