I am blessed to have Terry as my wife, and my children Abby and her husband Sam, who live in Columbus, OH; and Matthew our son who lives in Lynchburg, VA and is a commercial airline pilot.  Terry and I live in East Greenwich and love our Christ Church family.

Native hometown: Sea Cliff, NY

Education: BS Mechanical Engineering from Bucknell University;  MBA Business Management from Lehigh University

Best part of my job:  I have a small consulting company that helps businesses with strategic planning and execution.  The best part of my job is helping business owners lead their companies more effectively, and grow in their own life purpose.

Favorite character in the Bible: Paul.  Paul was a man of incredible vision, intention and courage, who was able to be joyful even while sitting in jail.  After Jesus, of course! Jesus is my Lord and Savior.  He has forgiven me and restored me as His creation.

Favorite Books and Authors:  My three favorite books (in addition to the Bible, which goes without saying) are The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey, and Good to Great by Jim Collins.  Pleasure reading?  Hmm, maybe when I retire!

Favorite Rhode Island Activity: Sailing.  We have a very small sailboat.

Favorite free time activities:  Getting together with friends and family; also enjoying the outdoors through sailing, bicycling, hiking, skiing; and volleyball.
