    The topics will be multifaceted.  An appropriate reflection of the diverse lives parents lead – however, they will be singularly focused upon the theme of a parent’s experience.

    I am married and have two school age boys.  I am a current Cub and Boy Scout leader, a former coach of multiple children’s sports.  Also a published author with a degree in creative writing, technology professional, and an experienced and accomplished public speaker.  I love the outdoors, lead an active lifestyle and am fueled and energized by my the needs of children of which I am a zealous advocate.

    Between early am cappuccinos, morning revelry with the sleepy boys, school commuter chaos, and mid afternoon cafe Cubano I will be focusing on delivering engaging and pertinent content.

    Expect everything from diet to fitness to health to volunteering – send me suggestions and ask questions and sure, throw tomatoes, I’ll feel right at home. 🙂

    Grateful for your presence and the opportunity to be of service to you and yours.
