About me … my Story …

     Who am I ?  


     ..that is the question I have ask myself many times over the years. I grew up in the great state of Indiana, completed High School and joined the United States Marine Corps.  Originally, I joined to have my college paid for, and during my first enlistment completed my Associates Degree.  Returning to Muncie I started Ball State University to become a teacher in English, with a minor in Multicultural Education.  After a couple of years of college in the “civilian” world, and getting married, I decided to return to the Marine Corps. This time my intentions were to complete my education and continue my career as a Marine.  I went on to receive a Bachelor of Arts Degree from National University, San Diego, California.   Later I earned my Master of Arts in Management and a Master of Arts Degree in Business from Webster University, St. Louis, Missouri.


     I had a successful career as a Marine and retired in July of 1998.  I went on to other careers, as a property manager for 10 years, then in a Call Center working as an AppleCare Advisor.  Soon after the military, I became a single father and raised my 5 children, who now, all except one, are grown and out on their own.  I returned to Muncie, Indiana in Oct of 2008 to be around my parents, in their final years.  They have since pasted on, and in this time found a wonderful woman to share my life with, we stayed in Muncie, until her retirement in 2019. In early 2020 we moved to Fort Benjamin Harrison a former U.S. Army post, located in the suburban of Lawrence Township, Marion County, Indiana.  Although Muncie was my starting point in life, I have lived all over the world and much of the United States while serving in the military, But returned to the state of Indiana, where as a child I called it “home“.   I have dedicated my years since returning to my family and my Family’s Genealogy.
