I'm a semi-retired biomedical consultant with passions that include travel, biking, canoeing/kayaking, gardening, and wildlife observation. I've been fortunate to travel to many great places for both work and recreation. After recovery from colon cancer surgery, I think I'm ready to hit the road and the airways again. Originally from the Boston area, I went to school in Missouri and have lived in Washington(DC), Wisconsin, and Michigan. Travels have included Egypt, Cyprus, India, many European countries, Canada, and all US states except five.

Since my ostomy in August of 2009, I have been gradually regaining my ability to live a very active lifestyle. I am interested in talking to others about adjusting to the problems faced when osteomates travel and participate in outdoor activities.
