My Profile

I am with one of five of our grandchildren.

I am a husband, father, grandfather, gardener, writer, presenter, podcaster, and blogger. I’m Polish and Italian and had the best family a child could ask for. I am who I am because of all my relatives and friends.

After 45 years of serving the Catholic Church as a teacher, Director of Religious Education, and Adjunct Theology Professor, I retired in 2014. I enjoyed my work and most importantly all the people I met along that part of my life’s journey.

Now I read a great deal, write a great deal, and garden as much as I can. We came from the earth and back to the earth we will go. The earth requires our care and concern in the meantime.
