I grew up in Caldwell, NJ. I have lived in upstate New York, Isla Vista (UCSB), Kauai, Tallahassee, Charleston, south Florida, and since 1981, Santa Rosa, my favorite. I have traveled to 48 states, 10 Canadian provinces, 13 countries in Central and South America, 10 countries in Europe, and 8 more countries in the Caribbean. I have hitchhiked over 30,000 miles, hopped several freights, crewed a sailboat 900 miles, jumped solo from an airplane, backpacked in the wilderness over 155 nights, and ride a motorcycle. My jobs have included being a NYC messenger, postal carrier, forest fire fighter, mosquito control biologist, computer programmer, and high school teacher. I have taught full-time at SRJC since 1985 including COBOL, BASIC, dBASE, Pascal and C++ programming, computer literacy, database management, Excel, management information systems, expert systems, operating systems, and Photoshop. I am an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) in Photoshop CS6. I am a follower of Jesus Christ; my relationship with Him is more important to me than anything else. I met my wife while watching the sunset on the beach in Florida. We have been married since 1980 and have one adult son.

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things." (Philippians 4:8)
