Everyone tells me I have re-invented myself and it's just not fair. Well, they could do the same, I say. After 50 years, half in CT and half in San Francisco, I followed a life long dream and moved to this charming third world country to begin life again.
I have spent most of my life in sales and entrepreneurial oriented work. Worked with small businesses as a consultant to help them grow with control and profitably. Worked with hundreds of companies and help them with their HR issues so they could focus on their core work.
After years of satisfying work I come down here and buy some land, build a house and then on a wild impulse a friend convinces me to buy another huge parcel and become a "green" developer. Huh? Yes, this is the third half of my life as owner of El Encanto del Sur (see website), and I love it here. I am in Nicaragua six-nine months a year, living here with Indie and Toby, the two 4 footed friends and Luis - my gardener who has been here for more than three years and who can fix anything!
That's the short story - travelled all over the world, You'll find me on Tuesday nights at Open Mike at Pau Hana, singing some oldies (Runaway, Secret Agent man) with my neighbor up the road, Brian and if I'm in town, you can always bribe me with a beer and I'll show you the real secret spots up here.

This is a spectacular place hidden away in the jungle. My wife Barbara and I simply love being here. There are monkeys and birds galore. The view of the jungle, ocean and Costa Rica are amazing. Sitting on the porch listening to the wind and wildlife and admiring the view puts you completely at peace. The housekeepers and their two children are the best we've had by far during any of our … See more
