I am a reggae and blues musician.  I enjoy running and weight lifting, Kung Fu, boxing and fishing.  I took care of my daughter from the time she was 10 weeks old until she started in Montessori at 18 months as a stay at home dad. I have lived abroad for 21 years; from the Dutch West Indies to Australia, to Thailand, followed by 1 year in Switzerland. We then spent a year in Mexico and returned to Europe for 3 years.  We have been in the U.S. since 2007.  My family and I have explored the Virgin Islands, Southern and Northern California, Tampa Bay and SW Florida. 

 Activities Traveling, Martial Arts, running, music, and being at home with my family
