Your Bio

Hi, I'm John. I live in Holden Beach, NC where I waste most of my time flying kites. I began flying about 6 years ago when, while walking down the beach, someone said "Here, hold this for me". Turns out it was a line to a kite being flown by "Grumpy", one of the WACKOS kite club members. I realized I hadn't flown a kite in 50 years. The WACKOS (Wings Across Carolina Kiting and Okra Society.....had to have something start with "O", why not okra?) showed me the ropes and now most of my disposable income and time goes into this stuff. If you're interested in learning to fly go to your local kite store or visit one of these good websites for more info: ; ;
When I'm not flying, I'm a biochemist and consult for drug companies.
