EDUCATION Florida State University (BS)
WOULD CHANGE about Florida We need to market this state as more than a tourist destination or a place to retire to.
NEW HOBBY I’ve fallen in love with rugby.
Sabbatical Topic I did some relief work in East Africa in the 1990s. I would go back in a heartbeat to study the successes and challenges of managing the nation of Uganda.
