I'm a Sergeant First Class in the Illinois Army National Guard, where I serve as a recruiting and retention Non-Commissioned Officer. I recently returned from Afghanistan, where I led a a team of U.S. military trainers who educated and mentored Afghan Border Police to defend their home turf against terrorists, and led humanitarian aid missions to help Afghan civilians. Previously, I served for many years in the U.S. Navy Reserve, and as an active duty U.S. Marine.
In civilian life prior to Afghanistan, I was an independent business consultant, a technology sales & support consultant with AT&T, and Sunday school teacher in suburban Chicago, where I live with my wife and three teenagers.
I'm a lifelong student of diverse religions and spiritual practices, and I'm currently an elder at my Presbyterian Church. I attended Ohio State University, where I earned a BA with Distinction in Communications. "Afghan Journal" is my first commercially published work.
NOTE: Although I'm back from my Afghan tour, I continue to maintain a blog - and I invite you to read it: http://www.LifeLoveandTruth.com.
