Wayne has been driving for Uber and Lyft (he does both) since June, 2018. A former CEO of a book publishing company in the UK where he was living before moving to Amarillo, Wayne likes to drive passengers around about 12 days a month in his spare time.
Meet the Driver
Born to travel, Wayne vacationed with his two brothers and mother and father often in the Adirondack Mountains in New York State and New Hampshire. His parents took him twice on a vacation towing a trailer all across the United States and Canada when he was only 14 years old.
Since childhood, Wayne has been to 37 countries and 49 U.S. states during his more than 60 years of living. Born in Morristown, New Jersey in the middle of the last century, he studied physics and psychology at Saint Mary’s University in San Antonio. By the age of 20, Wayne started working for ISKCON BBT, an international book publishing company, and by 22 years of age he made his first voyage overseas on company business, where he lived in India for one year. Wayne next traveled to the Kingdom of Iran and taught English in the Royal Iranian Air Force in the days before Iran became a radicalized country. After that he continued his overseas venture in the United Kingdom, where he lived in London, Hereford, and Hertfordshire, often visiting Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Island and the Isle of Jersey. In 1983 he moved back to the United States to New York City, where he continued his career with the BBT and ISKCON until 1986, during which time he traveled on business extensively throughout the United States.
In 1986 Wayne relocated to San Francisco and later Berkeley, California, and by 1987 he became ISKCON’s Regional Director of the Pacific Northwest based in Seattle and later Issaquah, Washington, frequently visiting Vancouver, Canada.
He moved to Canada in 1988 and remained there until 1997 as Regional Director of the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada.
In 1997 he moved back to England and took over as the Chief Executive Officer and President of ISKCON until his retirement in 2002. His wife insisted he move to Midland, Texas, which he did, and in October 2002 he moved to Amarillo, where he and his wife remain today.
