I am a firm believer in paying it forward, from fostering children to working with the local PTO, participating on the board for the Boys and Girls Club of Lunenburg, as vice-chair of the Lunenburg Architectural Preservation District Commission, as a member of the Lunenburg School Committee, among other organizations, I find a way to give back to the community in which I live.
In late 2019, I became a Board Member and Founder for the Del Shores Foundation, Inc., a 501(c) (3) charitable organization whose "mission is to find and facilitate the development of new southern queer artistic voices through bringing together artists and working professionals, amplifying new work and connecting artists to platforms for the creation of the work."
I've contributed to artists to help them get their messages and art out into the world. I've participated in IndieGogo campaigns, Kickstarter campaigns and Patreon campaigns in my support. Through this, I've had the very good fortune to meet some fantastic people and support even more.
Some of these collaborations have led me to co-produce two films to date (A Very Sordid Wedding - 2017 and the Cognitive - 2019) because I believe in their messages of love and inclusion and the empowerment of LGBTQ+ artists.
I've Executive Produced a Classical Crossover album by three-time Billboard Charting artist Jason Antone titled "Inside My Heart." Jason sings beautifully in 5 languages with a full orchestra.
I thought you might want to get to know me a bit, so I grabbed a bunch of questions from
https://museumhack.com/list-icebreakers-questions/ and answer them here.
I am a double-widowed, single father of a boy and girl. We have two dogs and live in North Central Massachusetts. My immediate family lives in California and my in-laws live in Indiana. I have been fortunate to be able to work from home to be there for my kids as they've been growing up, and I thank my lucky stars every day.
I love to travel and experience all the world has to offer, and I've got some adventures planned!
I have been working since the age of 13, when I worked as janitor at my middle school. For the last 10 years, I've been with the same company doing work that I really enjoy as a project manager. Each day offers a challenge that I need to solve, and in the process I learn something new.
