Skills & Expertise to Share

Boat builder and former board member of the Florida Maritime Museum, former security-cleared process automation specialist and project manager for military and civilian DC agencies and small business owner since 1993, Kindra is a legit artist with a fine Arts degree from VCU and an accomplished painter and sculptor. I am a fair carpenter even outside of boat building and a confident amateur plumber. Kindra and I remodeled our home in VA including moving walls, refinishing floors and kitchen and bathrooms, etc etc. Looking now to build a home in Lewis or Cowlitz counties in WA.

Mapleton's Pets

Yes, one 15yr old, obediance-champion kelpie (now retired!) who is never "off-lead" and one 11 year old indoor cat who is master of all he surveys (limited to the inside of a 19ft travel trailer right now, but still)

Mapleton's Hometown

Rode out of Saint Petersburg, FL on March 29th for a 4600 mile journey around the US ending in Onalaska. Ten years in Florida, with 15 years in Fairfax, VA before that. My wife Kindra and I met kayaking around Wye Island in May of 2001, and Wed on May 1st, 2004. 15 years this Spring is a good start!
