I’m the free-spirited papoose of a pair of used-to-be hippies, that loves getting muddy out on the trails with my dog, sampling foods and craft beers while globetrotting, and broadening my horizons through my relationships with others.
Since retiring from the military four years ago, I’ve been living life on my own terms and ever the optimist, I always attempt to find the silver linings (although I’m not always successful).
I have an amazing wife (a.k.a. the other Mrs. P-B) who manages to tolerate me being ruled by my inner child while encouraging me to pursue my creative endeavors. We recently relocated to North Carolina from Panama, Central America with our three cats and a dog and welcomed my father-in-law and his semi-psychotic stalker cat into our home.
