Owner of First Mates, a small business in Naples, Fl. Marine mechanic and electrical technician.
Before the words "cancer patient" tried to define me, I operated an on-water mobile repair business and seasonally sailed to remote places in my live aboard cruising vessel. After treatment, I restarted my business in a new location. An author and artist, I published four books (two nonfiction, a sci-fi novel, and an original art adult coloring book).
