As with most people, I wear many hats. Twenty-three years ago I began a career in nonprofit social services. For years, I worked with people with disabilities and their families. Later, I operated a community center that served the homeless, poor and others who were vulnerable. I am a business owner, operating My Life Media in the Cleveland area. My company provides entertainment, training and public speaking services. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to interact in a variety of ways with leaders in the public and private sectors. I have a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Cleveland State University. I've taught Political Science at the college level. Recently, I resigned my position in nonprofit to focus on my expanding entertainment and public speaking services and to pursue other interests, such as writing. I am married to my wife Colleen and we are lifelong residents of beautiful Lakewood, Ohio.
