I earn my living as a educator in public relations but prefer the titles of husband, father, outdoorsman and grandpa. On the job, I’m associate professor at a large public university in the Midwest. I teach exclusively graduate-level courses and work entirely online. Mostly from my kitchen or patio.
Before I turned educator in 1992, I spent 16 years as a PR professional, most of that time with counseling firms, including my own. Off the job, I pursue outdoorsy stuff, including fishing, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, cross-country skiing, and cycling. (Yes, I kill God’s creatures, but I eat them. Waste not, want not.)
I married the perfect woman 39 years ago. We have two sons and two grandsons. Sharon knows I worship her, but has probably not seen this page, as she almost never reads the blog. She sees it as insane obsession that doesn’t come with a paycheck. So clearly, she’s way smarter than I am.
