After traveling to Costa Rica in 2004 and staying for 3 months on my first 7 year Sabbatical with the Intel Corporation – I fell in love with the climate and the culture. In 2010, I quit my job with Intel after working there for 13 years and moved here full time. From patient to volunteer to employee; I have been working with CRR since April 28th, 2013 and a total of 13 years in Recovery. I am dual diagnosed with PTSD (Former US Marine) and quite familiar with depression and how to lead a happy and productive life despite it. Now a husband and father with 3 awesome dogs, I truly found a home here and love the work I do as a team member of the Costa Rica Recovery staff. My side interests are working with the patients and others as a Personal Trainer/Nutritionist and being the tech consultant for our largest AA Group here in Costa Rica where I also administer Costa Rica AA.com – Life is GOOD!
