Husband. Father. Friend. Consultant. Teacher. Mediator. Poet. Coastie. Blogger. Philosopher. Counselor. Thinker. Student. Implementer.

Professionally, I'm an internal, master organizational performance consultant with the Coast Guard in Portsmouth, Virginia, and for the last dozen years have been responsible for bringing about systematic organizational leadership and management in alignment with the service's performance excellence framework.

I live just a stone's throw from the shores of the Elizabeth River in Olde Towne Portsmouth with my wife, Jenny, and five sons: Andrew, Richard, Elliot, John, and Henry. When I have the time, I enjoy sailing, walking, writing, and cooking.

Many moons ago I taught at a college preparatory school along the shores of the Susquehanna River.  I loved the classroom; my best work memories (and my worst) come from the intensity of living and working in a boarding school. Every once in a while I am reminded that given the opportunity, I would return to a small, independent, boarding school. In the mean time, I have a great gig here in Olde Towne.
