If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you take with you? Other than my wife and two sons, I would take food, fresh water and shelter. If those things are on the

island already I would take a communication device to the outside world, many books and medical equipment.


What is the first concert you ever attended? I have never attended a concert, unless a high school band concert counts, then it was in 1979.


Favorite Quote: 

“People are often unreasonable, irrational and self-centered. 

Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.

Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you.

Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.

Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten.

Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.

Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.

It was never between you and them anyway.” --Mother Teresa


If people really knew me, they’d know: 

  • My Christian faith guides my life.

  • I believe children are the most precious asset that exists in this world.

  • Honesty and integrity, in myself and in others, is extremely important to me.

  • Deception and manipulation are the lowest methods for accomplishing anything.
