I am a cradle Catholic. I am retired from the telecommunications and financial industry and live on a small “Gentlemen’s Ranch.” Our Ranch is not the Ponderosa, but it is big enough for our horses and dogs. I have been married since 1974, have 3 children, 10 grandchildren, and a great-grandchild.
Concerning education, I hold an M.Th., MS, MBA and completed a 4-year Bible Study program with the Bennet Hill Monastery. I teach Bible Studies in our Parish and at a detention center (i.e., I am a volunteer Law Enforcement Officer), studied under different Rabbis (i.e., genetically, I am part Sephardic Jew), was a Co-Establisher of St. Paul’s Street Evangelization Chapter in my community, worked as an RCIA catechist for 3 years and received an RCIA Catechist certification from the Augustine Institute. I also head the Apologetics Ministry group and I am a Lector and EMHC at my parish. Lastly, I have been on pilgrimages to Rome, Fatima, Lourdes, the Holy Lands, and several other religious sites.
Most importantly, I love the Catholic Church and the faith and teachings of the Church.
