Hi. I'm a retired chef who stills loves to cook, now in my own gourmet kitchen. I'm also an accomplished handy-man, turning my home into a tropical oasis. I love giving parties, scuba diving, free diving for abalone, gardening & travel. I've traveled extensively in the US and Europe. I've been scuba diving in the Philippines, Mexico, Hawaii, Belize and Australia. I've done a lot of traveling and camping, with my son, in Australia where we dived the Great Barrier Reef, went hot air ballooning in the middle of the outback, walked Ayers Rock and watched the sunrise, scaled the Sydney Harbor Bridge. We've been to Alaska fishing for halibut & flying to Mt. McKinley, landing on glaciers and exploring Denali National Park where we saw grizzly bears in the wild. Gardening is also a passion, ever since I was a boy in my grandfather's vegetable garden in Boulder Creek, Ca. I love to entertain and meet new people. And I hope to travel to new tropical paradises where the water is clear and warm.
