Born and raised in Orange, California, I received the shock of my life when my dad relocated us to a small farm town just outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan the summer I turned 15. With the exception a four (4) brief years in New Mexico in the 90’s, Michigan has remained my home since. It truly is a beautiful place to live. With four true seasons, clean air, endless forests, rivers and open spaces, it is like the ads say, “pure Michigan.”
Professionally my life has been diverse also. Half of my career I worked in marketing, sales, advertising, and non-profit development. The second half has been in law enforcement. Both sides of my career have been good to me. I learned a lot of great professional skills on the business side, and the law enforcement side is where you really hone skills that involve working with people, listening, and learning to appreciate what you have. It also provided the flexibility of a schedule that allowed me to be a large part of my children’s lives while they were growing up. Now, with the last of my children in college, I think it’s time to return to business; to have a schedule that allows me to spend time again with my wife, the original love of my life.
But enough about me! I hope you enjoy this blog. Thank you to my wife who inspired me to do this. This is what the name implies, my Senseless Ramblings; my thoughts and opinions. Some are thought out and have purpose while others are just “stream-of-consciousness” stuff that flows through my overly-active imagination. Please comment if you like a post. Look for updates related to hockey, too. I love hockey, a sport introduced to me when I moved to Michigan as a teen. In fact, I invite you to jump over to The Pink Puck (www.thepinkpuck.com), a small online hockey publication that I also write for.
Cheers to you and yours. Have a great day, week, year, and life. Live every day as a single snapshot, then put it all together as your movie.
