I have a passion to teach people about the truths contained in the Bible. These truths enable us to know God and to understand His grace as we apply them in our lives and throughout our community. My wife Elizabeth and I have been married for 31 years and have nine children, ranging in age from 27 years old to 7 years old. I enjoy teaching through books of the Bible to both middle-school age children and adults. The middle school age is a wonderful age to teach – the kids at this age love to ask questions and love to learn new things – and the adult classes are a great opportunity to share experiences where God has touched our lives in so many ways that demonstrate the truths in the Bible.

I am an electrical engineer, enjoy math and science, and was born in Staten Island, New York. The Good Lord called me to Him in March 1987 – His patience and grace have been a blessing to me as my relationship with Him has grown over the years. I enjoy reading – especially authors from the 1800s like Dickens and Cooper – and I love to play piano. My children are a joy – I love doing activities with them, having deep and “loud” discussions with them on Biblical topics and politics, and playing sports with them. And, the Good Lord has blessed me with a wonderful wife! We enjoy spending time together, going on walks, and watching old movies – over, and over, and over again!

I would encourage all of us to consider Christ and what He has done for each of us through His death and resurrection – “If you seek Him, He will let you find Him” 1 Chronicles 28:9
