After Woodward, I played a little football and graduated from Miami. Was married for 10 years or so ... we are still great friends. Began teaching at Sycamore High School while attending law school. Coached football and wrestling. Started the Photography Department at Sycamore ... won many national awards.

Taught with many ex-Woodward teachers ... Betsy Bolander, Ann Davis and. Gene Shrimpton became the Super. Lived for a while with Sharon Loos who taught chemistry at Woodward while we were there.

I then went into private practice. Became General Counsel at Marina Management Services, then Sadler Financial Services. I am still GC with Sadler Financial primarily with the PROWARE-SoftTec group which develops, licenses and manages court related software large counties and states. Sadler Financial allows me to have an outside law practice.

Earned a USCG Captain's license and an FAA Pilot's License (IFR). Bought a Lagoon 500 Sailing Catamaran in Bordeaux, France in 2012. Sailed it to St. Thomas. Also bought a Piper Mirage in 2012. Some turbine time. Sold the boat & plane during COVID in 2021.

Upon turning 50, I began taking off 12 weeks or so a year spending a lot of time in the Bahamas and elsewhere. Elsewhere included more than 50 countries. The most interesting, besides the US included Iceland (4-times) and the Faroe Islands
, and Antarctica which is not a country. My favorites: All the countries along the NATO Mediterranean.

I have traveled extensively over the years around the planet sailing and flying. Sailed the seven seas and been to all seven continents. As I've gotten older, I tend to stay away from places where ice and rock people live.

School Story:

Miami BFA in Design 1969, Juris Doctor Salmon P. Chase College of Law, 1974

"Shocking with a heavy heart" is my reaction to Dave Mitchell's passing. The pandemic is hitting home. Everyone stay safe. Take no chances.
