About Me and My Poetry

My first venture in sharing what I write. I served the military for 30 years including two combat tours. I found sobriety in A.A. 35 years ago. Married to Diane for 38 years now residing in San Francisco. I earned a B.A. in Psychology and a M.P.A. and now work in hospital administration.
