I was born in a small town in West Central Ohio. When I arrived at college, I realized that I had more classmates in my math class than in my high school graduating class; there were more new students that fall than people living in my hometown.
After graduating, I moved to Wichita Falls, Texas to work at a newspaper. A little less than two years later, I moved to Scranton, Pennsylvania, where I’ve worked in journalism, educational writing, and now marketing.
You’ll learn plenty about my interests from the posts, but the short summary? I like travel and genealogy. I’m a planner and list-maker. I set high standards and expect the best from myself. And I’ve got a great wife, who deserves the best.
As for the blog? This a collection of travels, thoughts, and observations, analysis of data and explanations of information. It’s all done with one overarching thought. To communicate effectively, you’ve got to think about your audience – about who is listening – and convey your message on their terms.
