I've had a love for animals, and the outdoors as far back as I can remember, and I developed a passion for writing in elementary school. I'm a gardener, outdoors and fitness person, strict vegetarian for over 25 years, and an English/Reading teacher. I also love sushi, strong black coffee, various shades of the color blue, and cooking in a crockpot.
Currently, I am also a long-form content writer and a preferred writer for ten different companies; seven of those companies being commercial real estate/retail/restaurant and the others being in the pets, landscaping, and education departments. Additionally, I write children's non-fiction ebooks about animals and I'm mid-way through a children's fiction chapter book about a private detective opossum. I design my own ebooks with Adobe InDesign and they're published on Amazon.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Communications/Education and a Master’s Degree in Education. I've created and written unique educational curriculum, in addition to, designing and developing a Career Investigation pilot program for at-risk students.
I'm the Founder and President of Lucky Stars Ranch, 501c3, non-profit organization, which has served as a sanctuary for homeless domestic animals and wildlife, in addition to senior and disabled animals since 2005. I stay active with volunteer work involving helping seniors and struggling families with their pets and pet food. Sometimes the people I help are neighbors that I've known for years, and other times they’re total strangers. I'm a firm believer in paying it forward; I believe that only in doing so will we make the world a better place.
I live with my wife and best friend, Chris, and together we take care of a menagerie of animals including, but not limited to, dogs, cats, turtles and tortoises, opossums, a mouse and a duck.
