I was born and raised in mid-coast Maine and have traveled, lived and worked in the US and Europe.  For the last 20 years I have lived in Lewiston Maine with my wife Kati (a native of Budapest Hungary) and son, Kelen and three Mini Schnauzers, Harry, Blossom and Fred who are all rescue dogs.

By training I am a psychiatric rehabilitation practitioner with an MS in the field, and am currently ABD on my doctoral work in the role of the liberal arts approach in higher education.  However, I have a broad range of interests from fly fishing to thermo-electrics, fine arts, tiny homes and motorcycles.  Above is a tiny home we built as a cottage in my home town.
