How many relatives do you have with BCM?
Myself, my grandson and 2 nephews.
What is your job?
I am retired as the owner of an HVAC business which I sold in 2015.
What is your hobbies?
I like to read, go to movies and work in the garden. My wife and I travelled to Europe in late summer.
What is your most useful BCM tip?
1) If you have the opportunity to meet with Dr. Jacobson at Scheie Eye Institute in Philadelphia, please do. 2) Learn as much as possible in your local area or from your state’s services for the blind. They can prescribe eyewear that helps to maximize your vision. 3) Ask for help when you need assistance!
Greatest achievement/proudest moment so far…
1) Owning, operating and selling a succesful business. 2) Having a family who supports me in my endeavors. My grandson has BCM and we have a strong bond.
Not many people know this about me but…
1) My twin brother did not have BCM. 2) I cannot see traffic lights in daylight hours but I can see them at night.
