At this point in time I am transitioning from being employed as the director of an Adoption Agency to a new phase in my life. I retired from my position as the Executive Director last October and now am dedicating myself to more artistic endeavors. I am a licensed clinical social worker and am trained as a family therapist. In addition to doing some family and organizational consulting I have begun to write works of fiction and non-fiction. I live with my wife of thirty plus years in what can be described as a little farm in the city - on the north side of Chicago. I am the father of three grown children and have three grand children.
