LIVING TO LEARN
I am happily building my business as a Certified Hypnotherapist (IMDHA #0315-042454) here in San Antonio, Texas.
My practice is always looking for new clients and referrals.
For 35 years my vocation was computer programmer/analyst/consultant. I have written millions of lines of code and developed/deployed/maintained hundreds of application systems. My other work-life pursuits were assistant city manager, commercial pilot, flight instructor, Naval electronics technician, construction worker and shoe shine boy. I have now retired from those endeavors.
I have flown around the world, met the Crown Prince of Kuwait and made a presentation to the Kuwait Minister of the Interior. I was almost arrested at the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs-Élysées on New Year’s Eve 1993 (that is a LONG story, but enjoyable memory.)
My hobbies are eclectic; amateur blacksmith; environmental educator, Master Falconer, ham radio operators, commercial rated pilot, minister, woodworking, astrophotography and scuba diver. Yes, I am either flighty or over-achiever. No, I am not active in all of them now.
I believe I am both an intelligent and creative person. I live to give comfort, relief and hope to others. I also have great love and concern for the environment, wildlife and all other things of this universe.
