I'm privileged to be a husband, father and grandfather.
An of Ohio State University graduate, I'm a diehard Buckeyes fan. Author, editor and co-author of numerous books, including "Tufting Legacies." "The Heart of Mentoring" (with David Stoddard), and "Business At Its Best."
I've been a journalist for more than 40 years, the first 10 as editor of community newspapers, and a magazine editor for 17 years. My job has been to be "never at a loss for words."
I strive to integrate my faith into every area of my life - work, family, play - in meaningful, practical ways. I'm creative, whether with words or camera in hand, and enjoy music.
