I met my wife when we were both Disneyland employees and we have been married 50 years. I owned a running store for 5 years and then became a sales rep for ASICS Tiger for 12 years. I became the National Team Sales Manager, in charge of selling team shoes to schools and other entities. Retired on disability from Parkinson’s symptoms. Have undergone 6 major spine surgeries along with heart, brain, 2 shoulders and 1 knee surgery. I have a Deep Brain Stimulator. I’m the proud parent of 3 adult children. I’m on the Board of Directors of the Tremble Clefs, a singing based voice enhancer, and am a discussion group leader for the North County Parkinson’s Discussion Group. I teach a Bible study for people with Parkinson’s, called Movers and Shakers, and participate in 2 other weekly studies but I welcome interaction with people of any level of faith.
