Who am I? It’s a question I ask myself constantly. My book jacket says I’m an author
and entrepreneur, but that is only a part of the picture. I’m a husband and father. I love
my family more than I can express.
I’m a dreamer. I’m goal-oriented, determined, driven. I’ve written multiple books and
have dozens more in my head. I sometimes get asked to speak in public, but I don’t
consider myself a great orator and I don’t seek out these opportunities.
I’m a joker. I post multiple times a day, mostly jokes, puns, and quotes. I have a
special place in my heart for kid’s jokes, so they get their own post.
I love sports. I used to play football in high school. I was a power lifter .I wrestled.
Who I am today certainly is not who I started out thinking I’d be.
I am handicapped. More accurately, I have MS and am confined to a wheel-chair, but
that is not a key way I define myself. It is a struggle not to let it take over and define
me. The challenges are very real and spill over into every other aspect of who I am, but
I push past those obstacles, find work arounds, forge ahead. I don’t rest on my laurels,
but focus on what’s next.
As I write down my thoughts, I think of you, the reader. I may not know you, but I know I
want to help you. The idea that my struggles can help you excel at your own is what
gets me out of bed in the morning and pushes me past the barriers.
Who I am is a work in progress and I’m grateful to be able to share it with those who will
