I am inspired by those around me and I hope to inspire others.

As of January 2018, I’m living in North Royalton - a southern suburb of Cleveland, Ohio.

My wife, Carrie, and I will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary this month with a weekend stay at Sawmill Creek Resort

My daughter Ashley is a freelance writer and currently working as a grant writer.

I joined the dead dad club last year and survived my first holiday season without my father. I know that each “first” (first Thanksgiving, first Christmas …etc) without him will be strange, but time heals those wounds. My sister and niece gifted me a stuffed bear made from my dad’s old military uniform for Christmas. A one-of-a-kind keepsake that I’ll cherish forever.

This year I am planning on attending more tech events around Cleveland and continue to learn and expand my horizons. Cleveland Givecamp and Ohio Linuxfest 2018 are both on my calendar!
