About your author
I grew up on the 'Spice Island', the island of Grenada located in the West Indies in the Caribbean Sea. My childhood years on the island forever was the best childhood a kid could hope for with an excellent education. I have dreams of retiring to Grenada someday but not on the near horizon. For now I live in the San Francisco Bay area and am blessed with a wonderful job as an Aircraft Maintenance Technician with Southwest Airlines in Oakland, Ca. I have been in the Aviation business since I was 18 years old initiated in the field by The United States Navy which I joined at age 17. I also do IT work, computer networking, security cameras for home or office and have set up smart homes. I love photography, drone flying and photography with my drone. I love my dogs more than anything and overall I just enjoy learning new things.
