I have been working in the non-profit accounting world for 18 years after a brief time in public accounting with Deloitte and Touche to start my second career in accounting. In my first career, I taught English in the Middle East for about 7 years after learning Arabic in Amman, Jordan. We lived in Muscat, Oman and had a great experience teaching English at Sultan Qaboos University. Our son David was born in Jordan and our daugher Elise was born in Oman. I have been married to my lovely wife Vicky since 1982 where we met in Tallahassee, FL at FSU.
