Head Custodian email@example.com
I was born in Kankakee, Illinois. We lived in a rural area (small neighborhood surrounded by corn fields). My childhood buddies from there are still buddies to this day. My 1950’s/60’s childhood is right out of the novels. It was a wonderful experience.
I have been in Florida for 21 years now, much of that time on the west coast where I worked for Pasco County. There, I was in charge of all the navigational lights and signs and channels in the county waters of the Gulf-of-Mexico. I was also responsible for planning and developing and working on the Artificial Reef Program, in which I coordinated a team to deploy tons of concrete, and even the sinking of a large concrete sail boat I raised and cleaned.
I am married to Eva Linkaite, who is from the country of Latvia.
I have been employed as ‘Head Custodian’ at MPC since 2011. I hope and plan on working here until I retire.
