    My wonderful family

    Without their love and support, I would be nowhere

    I am married to my best friend. We have been together for nearly twenty years and been married for ten years. We have two amazing, daring, and wonder-filled children. With my wife and my kids I am adventuring through life, and we are doing it together. That is what matters most to me.


    We love to travel, site see, explore and learn about the world and people. On any given weekend you might find us traveling Route 66, exploring temples from any number of religious traditions, taking photos at forest preserves, or at the library!

    Who am I?

    I wear a number of hats in life, and all of them make me a better me

    “When we learn something new, we are all a little like Don Quixote; for it was Cervantes who said, "Who reads much and walks much sees much and knows much." And that is the core of what I do - learning and helping others learn. I am a writer, an educator, a family man and a community leader.


    I have written a number of nonfiction publications in humanities, technology, game theory and education. I have been a teacher for 15 years from the littlest kids to adult learners to seniors in lifelong learning programs.


    My mother and father are incredible people. They support me in all of my endeavors and always have. My siblings have been my closest friends and together we are an inseparable clan. My wife is the most amazing, strong and talented person I know. She motivates me everyday to be a better me, and without her I would be lost. And my kids are my world.
