About Me

My Background


I grew up in Northern Illinois listening to rock and roll and the Cubbies on my transistor radio, building tree forts, riding motorcycles, playing sports in the neighborhood, just being a kid till 1972. Then my parents chased a dream and we moved to Hollywood, Florida where I started high school and I began to play tennis, lots of tennis, made great friends whom I still keep in touch with today and had the best time being in south Florida. After graduation, I went to college at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, met my wife, graduated with a Finance Degree and ended up teaching tennis for a living! I love it! I live with my wonderful spouse and we are beginning our retirement years. Life is challenging but it's all good! I'm grateful and humbled at life.  She sure knows how to throw curve balls when all is going well and put you back in your place. 

My Hobbies


When I'm not teaching tennis, I really love and enjoy writing songs, playing guitar (my wife calls her my mistress, Lol), and recording. I love walking on the beach and in the forest, listening to the waves taking it all in!!! I love to watch sports especially the championships! I enjoy feeding my mind so I watch science, cosmology and self help shows. I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, enjoy good food and a nice glass of spirits now and then to lighten up a little bit, so as not to take life to too seriously!  Additionally, I love pondering life and all its wonderment. I am still truly a child in awe of Mother Nature while enjoying my very beingness in the place where we all came into being and reside, Planet Earth. I make an attempt each day to be "present" to appreciate what is that stands before me.  Namaste.

My Dreams


Yes I still do dream at the ripe old age of 160!! ;-)  I have based the foundation of my life around this creed since college and what this site is all about!  Enjoy!!  


"That human is a success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men, women and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best she/he had."

Robert Lewis Stevenson

Yup!! Those words have pretty much have been the language of my soul's incredible journey!!!! All of which I will celebrate in Peace, Love and Harmony on this website/blog.
