I met my wife Analía in 1994 on the island of St. Maarten. She was from Argentina. We kept in touch for four years. She came to visit three times in 1998 and stayed permanently on the third visit. We got married in 2000 and moved from Illinois to San Diego. The house we bought had a pool and I didn’t know anything about pools. I did some self-teaching and also took some chemistry courses. We were looking to purchase a business anyways, so we purchased a pool business.
