I was born in Chicago, Illinois and now reside in Tucson, Arizona. The path here was not a direct western trek. I married an incredible woman and together we created a life shared with five children, with several career path changes, with a variety of pets and and with several places called "home" along the way. Intermingled components of advanced formal education and a broad swath of life and work experiences has filled in the remaining details of our existence up to today. An important postscript are the thirteen grandchildren who have blessed our lives. That number may increase and the prospect of that happening is a further blessing. If you know me, you know these facts. If you did not know these facts, get to know me by keeping in touch in the media we have available. If you do not know the facts and do not care to find out more, thats OK too. My life is an open book to my friends or those who wish to become my friends. Beyond that I have no intention of launching any kind of bio-book here. Isn't that the best news you have heard so far? I thought so.
