I took a six year hiatus from Disney in the mid to late 90's to work with Universal in the development and construction of their second theme park in Orlando, Universal's Islands of Adventure and adjoining Citywalk area.

Spare time activities are golfing, working around the house and reading.

Where would I like to visit?  Russia and China are two countries that intrigue me the most.
