I was born in Rochester, New York, and spent much of my youth in nearby Irondequoit and Honeoye.

I attended St. Thomas the Apostle grammar school and Aquinas Institute.

In 1975, I graduated the University of Toronto with a dual major in Latin American Studies and Comparative Religion.

I continued my studies at The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine where I received a Masters degree in Medical Entomology and Applied Parasitology.

In the late 1980s, I served as adjunct professor in the Department of Microbiology at the Managua Medical School, Recinto Universitario Rubén Darío.

Upon returning to the States, I taught Spanish at UNC, Chapel Hill and Durham Tech.

My daughter, Maria, was class salutatorian in June (2011) and has began her university career at UNC. She has a pitch perfect singing voice, loves the theater and plays viola.

Son, Danny is a  stellar middle school student, ardent soccer “stopper, reads “like a fiend” and plays oboe.

Currently, I operate two businesses in Mexico – “Yucatan Adventure” and “Medical Spanish Immersion.”

I hope to publish a novel, “Tusil Saasil – Trick of the Light,” and a collection of short stories entitled “It’s Haunted Now.”
