My Bio

I was born in the Min­neso­ta-Dako­tas Dis­trict, Duluth to be exact, the eldest of three sons to Mick­ey and Peg­gy Levine. My father was Amer­i­can. My moth­er was Cana­di­an. You can call me a North Amer­i­can … just don’t call me late for din­ner.

I spent my ear­ly years in the Cal-Nev-Ha Dis­trict (Orange Coun­ty, Cal­i­for­nia). Our fam­i­ly moved to the West­ern Cana­da Dis­trict (Win­nipeg) to man­age the Inter­na­tion­al Inn, a con­ven­tion hotel. I lat­er added Uni­ver­si­ty of Alber­ta in Edmon­ton to my trav­el­ling port­fo­lio. I con­tin­ued my edu­ca­tion in Lon­don, Eng­land, attend­ing the Dra­ma Cen­tre in Chalk Farm.

After attend­ing a suc­cess­ful mid-win­ter meet­ing in St. Lucia, our Cana­di­an win­ter came as a harsh real­i­ty.

I chose to set­tle down in the East­ern Cana­da and Caribbean Dis­trict (first Toron­to and then Owen Sound). I mar­ried Dis­tin­guished Sec­re­tary Julia. Along with her, was blessed with two young boys, Matthew and Mark. Not so young now, they have grown into tal­ent­ed men, mar­ried to equal­ly tal­ent­ed and gift­ed wives; Kate and Emi­ly. We are proud grand­par­ents of Pen­ny, Jack and Will.

Julia and I now spend sev­er­al months each year in the great Flori­da Dis­trict at our home in Tama­rac (near Fort Laud­erdale). We enjoy spend­ing time with a large num­ber of Kiwa­nis clubs while escap­ing the Cana­di­an win­ter.

When spare moments present them­selves, I am an avid e-read­er, a hope­ful golfer, a huff­ing pick­le baller and a wan­der­ing trav­el pho­tog­ra­ph­er.

 

Julia and I enjoyed sup­port­ing the Piper High Key Club along with mem­bers of the Tama­rac Kiwa­nis club.

What I’ve learned: No matter where you live, when you are with like minded people, you are always home.
