Successful Silicon Valley tradeshow producer/ company.. plan was to retire after move to isolated island in Thailand to be near son in 2004 but new career opened up writing about superyacht tropical destinations (for past decade). Best thing? Helping my son raise my gorgeous grandson, it's challenging and wonderful to have a second chance to raise a child. And then 5 years ago - a granddaughter an hour flight away. Best is easy flow lifestyle when living in the tropics.
