During the pandemic years of 2020-2022, I began writing and posting stories about growing up in San Diego on the “Vintage San Diego, the Group FB page. I’ve decided to move those stories to my personal website ( Having those stories on my personal site provides permanent continuity in the series and not subjected to the whims of FB. Beside, one doesn’t have to search the San Diego FB site to find the next episode. So here is part one – Coming to America.

If you would like to be informed when I post new information/ stories/photos, please sign-up via the Subscribe To Blog via email link on the right side of this page.

I am going to make this information and links public on FB for the time being.

I have spent the majority of my adult life as a science educator. As a K-5 science specialist for a major Florida School District I designed and developed the first-two stand-alone dedicated K-5 science classroom in the State — developed through a $100,000 grant by the Monsanto Corporation. I have worked as a naturalist and director of a 120 acre environmental center, as well as an Instructional Specialist for the U.S. Navy (Financial Management), U.S. Army (designing and developing medical interactive multimedia and distance learning courses,) and Department of Defense Dependent Schools (Science Specialist.)
