Mr. Ruggeri spent over 35 years in commercial banking. The US Air Force sent him to Yale University to study Chinese for Cold War assignments after a lengthy stint studying for the priesthood. His recent decision to leave the workforce and its constant downsizing and merger upheavals came easily after having raised his two children and rediscovering the joys of writing, one of his first ambitions. He is the author of 12 published books.
His adult two children, Kelly and Sean are successful in their personal and business enterprizes and are a source of unending pride.
Mr. Ruggeri currently lives in Anaheim and spends quality time baby sitting his grandchildren.
