I am a licensed but inactive real estate agent, ex stock-broker, ex British Army, involved in a couple of businesses. Am married with four kids but they are all away doing their own thing and my wife is in England finishing her PhD. As a result we have a lot of spare room in our house! I am a keen out-doorsman, canoeist, cyclist, sailor, erstwhile marathoner, hill-walker, x-country skier; generally not keen at being in the office. I am a history buff and I love and know north-east Minnesota well. Come and enjoy this beautiful part of the world.
