My academic credentials include a B.A. in Mathematics from UCLA, a M.A. in Business Management from the University of Nebraska and an A.A. degree in Real Estate.
Before launching a business career, I served five years in the Air Force, including a long tour in Vietnam. I left the military as a Captain.
I have over thirty years of marketing and sales experience in the computer industry. For the last ten years, I have managed my own marketing consulting firm, Pacifica Endeavors LLC, focused on mentoring start-ups and small businesses. I am also a partner in businesses addressing food safety (www.certificationfoodsafety.com) and manufacturing quality (www.isocalifornia.com).
In addition to client sites, I operate five Websites myself:
I have also authored and published three books addressing Internet marketing for non-techies. These are sold worldwide.
In addition, I am a licensed real estate broker in California. During the past few years, I have put this knowledge and experience to use advising Baby Boomers hurt by the recession about how to deal with tough real estate issues and still comfortably retire.
My wife and I now reside in Menifee, CA. It is still close enough to the beaches for bike rides and the local mountains for skiing. And I have the opportunity to work on my challenged golf game every now and then.
I appreciate what Boomer Authority is doing in providing a platform to leverage our generation's experience and expertise. Boomers will continue to play a major role in industry and national initiatives for years to come!
Like most older Baby Boomers I know, I have been busy making a living over the past months. While maintaining my existing businesses, I partnered in launching two new endeavors which fortunately have really taken off. Plus, I finally found time (usually late at night or early morning) to work on a pet project.…

Baby Boomer homeowners who are “upside down” in their mortgages face tough choices. Their home equity evaporated when the recession hit, and now they owe more on the property than it is worth. Perhaps they have lost their jobs too. Probably their savings have been reduced. They look around the neighborhood and see that properties similar to theirs are selling at two-thirds or even less of their mortgage amount. What action should they take? What are their alternatives?
