My favorite high school memory:

Attending and completing the "Office Procedures" class at the Walker Career Center all four years of High School (Training for being the Executive Assistant I've been for the past 12 years, with an Administrative Assistant career spanning now 20 years across corporate America (Eli Lilly, I.B.M. and others).

One thing I am really good at:

Tech (Lifelong Geek/Nerd). ... (Whadayaknow, the bullies in high school were right!).

My greatest accomplishment since WC:

Finding my wife after 40+ years of life (and my two step-sons).

One thing I wish I could change:

Steady employment.

What I wish I knew then:

How much growing up could suck (though it has major bright spots too!).

My favorite WC teacher:

Don't recall his name, but taught History and was from Latvia originally. Only one of my teachers who didn't do 'rote learning'. Learned more than just the study material from him, and for that I'm grateful.

The person who has influenced me the most:

In recent years, most definitely my wife. Before then, probably my mother.

What I miss the most from high school:

Nothing. (I was bullied 'constantly' all four years of high school, for being 'smart'). I skipped the yearbook and graduation and the prom because of the relentless bullying.

Best decision I've made since high school:

Paying attention to what the universe was telling me when i met my then-to-be-wife back in 2010 on Facebook. ('Yes', we met on Facebook ... how geeky is that!).

When I retire, I will:

Retire? What's that??? I don't see it ever happening for our generation, but if it were to become possible, simply retiring to a quiet spot somewhere in either California or Florida and 'disappearing from the worlds' radar' as much as possible.

My ideal getaway:

Disneyworld, Florida with the whole family.

My favorite quote:

Breathe.

Most difficult challange:

Raising my two step-sons (both have special issues that can make them a challenge).

How I would like to be remembered:

He was a good guy.

Best relationship advice:

Be best friends, as well as partners.

Best parenting advice:

Don't kill them. ... In seriousness, love them no matter what (you can want to kill them at the same time though, it's allowed).

Current Employer

Self-Employed

The job I would choose if nothing else mattered:

I.T. Guru

For fun I like to:

Travel & take copious photographs.
