That led to a career in aviation that found our growing family living first in Iran and then Scotland where I flew helicopters commercially. After 9 years we returned to the US and I entered the commercial helicopter manufacturing sector with a major manufacturer. My responsibilities grew to include establishing and managing a great team of people addressing all North and South American commercial sales and support. Our 26+ years with this company included four in the firm's Milan, Italy headquarters where I was privileged to lead the global marketing team.
Along the way we've owned three boats. The first was a 19 foot O'Day sailboat, then a 26 foot I/O Cruisers, and finally a 36 foot Carver. All were enjoyed on the Chesapeake Bay.
We're now living on Cape Cod, a truly beautiful part of our country and one that is an absolute boater's paradise.
