The following bio is up-to-date as of July, 2007. The contact information is a bit strange due to our status as long-term cruisers on our family sailboat. We do receive mail in the States (although we can physically receive it only a few times a year), and email comes directly to the boat. We are currently sailing in the Indian Ocean, and can best be reached by email as shown on the contact information page.
