My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 3 grandsons. I manage a wealth management firm I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of non-fiction books for adults, and books for children. In addition to my family, friends, profession, and writing books, my passions include writing song lyrics and poetry, tending a fern garden and small redwood grove on our property, hiking in ancient old-growth redwood forests, and watching old movie classics.
