I am the husband of Lisa, the father of Amy, Brian, Camrin and Lindsey. I am currently the Director of Development & Alumni Relations at Penn State Berks, in Reading, Pennsylvania. I was formerly a businessman, pastor, layout artist, musician, cook, paperboy, and perpetual student. The student part lingers on, as I am currently a PhD student at Alvernia University. I like to think I am a life-long learner and hope to use this blog to share some of my thoughts on life, politics, religion, music, family, and the world as I see it. If anyone happens to read some of my scattered thoughts, I hope you will find them thought provoking, stimulating or even amusing, and you will take the time to share your thoughts here as well.
