    Biography
    Semi-retired from a career in television commercial production, I'm now happily engaged in the rescue, rehabilitation and permanent placement of abandoned and abused Cocker Spaniels, as well as occasional investment management in special situations. Diligently tending to these interests - and many others - leaves little time to indulge my love of travel, though I still manage to do some of that as well.

    That's Snickers, my now-world-famous Castaway Cocker Spaniel on the day he arrived back in Honolulu aboard NCL's 'Pride of Aloha' in April '08 - about nine months old and weighing only eight pounds - appearing at a 'press conference' on board the ship. With him is Julianna, the ship's officer whom Capt. Evans Hoyt assigned to take care of him while he was the Captain's special guest for the 1200 mile return voyage from Tabuaeran (Fanning Island) in the Republic of Kiribati to Hawaii.

    You can also do a Google search for Snickers and Gulliver to find many other accounts of the story.
