It’s wonderful that you’ve arrived here. You may be wondering what this site may bring you. My greatest desire is that this will be a place where you receive hope and inspiration. Something to take with you that makes your world brighter, that opens your heart and that connects you with (god), by whatever name you use. And, even if you have no current relationship or feel distant from (god), my dream is that there is comfort, support and love for you here.
You may want to know a little about me. That’s certainly fair. I’d want to if I were you.
I was born in 1952, grew up in Watertown, NY until my family moved to Delmar, NY in 1961, where I still reside. I graduated from Bethlehem Central High School and from Hartwick College, in Oneonta, NY, where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion in 1974. My first job was as a janitor, then a maintenance man at the Holiday Inn in Oneonta. It was there that I learned all jobs deserve our respect, especially the ones many people would not want to do themselves.
My wife and I relocated to Delmar, where I began a twenty-five-year career in banking. I had the privilege of working my way through the ranks from part time Teller to Vice President and Regional Sales Manager. I was responsible for the supervisory oversight for twenty of our branches. When the bank’s emphasis changed from customer service to sales, I decided to find a job which focused on providing support to people in need. I found exactly what I was looking for and in January 2001 began working for Catholic Charities Disabilities Services, as their Director of Business Administration. My duties included the oversight of the Finance, Facilities and Technology departments. Working behind the scenes to help provide necessary services for those dependent on others for their care was richly satisfying. It also gave me a profound appreciation for those who provided the direct care services on a daily basis.
I retired in December 2013 and began my most rewarding career, by assisting my wife in caring for our grandchildren who lived locally. Spending time with and getting to know them has been an incredible bright spot in my life.
In addition, I began my writing career in earnest. Please take a look at the BOOKS page on this website for more information.
That gives you some idea about me, but there’s a little more I’d like you to know. I spent a great many years thinking of myself as a ‘spiritual seeker’ and I found enormous rewards along the way. But in 1997 I read a book, Conversations with God, an uncommon dialogue, by Neale Donald Walsch, that inspired an exceptional change in my life. I began having my own personal, intimate, two-way conversations with god. These conversations and the relationship that’s developed, have shifted me in profound and surprising ways. I would now describe myself as a ‘spiritual revealer’. If you’d like to know more of my story, I encourage you to read my book, talking with (god), which you can find a link to on the BOOKS page.
I now invite you to come along on an adventure with me. I promise you it can open the door to your heart and spirit, if that is what you desire and what you choose.
