I grew up in Asheville and have had a variety of different careers from being a probation officer for 4 years, just out of college, then 16 years in banking and finance then owning a restaurant in downtown Asheville in the 1990's and then starting a gift and garden retail store (Thyme In The Garden) 7 years ago, which I sold my interest in this year to my former wife. In the last three years I have become a fixture at the YMCA, lost a lot of weight, have developed an interest poetry, reading and embarrassing attempts at writing. I also love to cook and play golf, but have little time from either this year.
