I am NOT a millennial, but I sure do have the brain and energy of a 25 year old. I don’t mean that I am immature, however I tend to have the same likes, interest and knowledge of a generation much younger than myself (and my 21 year old nephew and 25 year old niece vouch for that.) I enjoy staying on the edge of pop culture, technology, sports and music. Yes, I can rock to Bruce Springsteen and Imagine Dragons.
My wife, Lil and I have been married for over 27 years. We have been together for 31 years. We met at Montclair State College. My wife would tell you she was the Doogie Howser of college (indicating she graduated at 12, so as not to unveil her age.)
We have no children, but we have the most wonderful Golden Retriever – Luca.
I am currently on a career journey. I have been trying to find my way the last 8 years. When the economy tanked about a decade ago, many of us were put in a tough situation in terms of finding jobs that suited our experience and skills. I have taken a number of jobs in the last years to Pay The Bills, so to speak, but none that really catapulted me back into what I’d find to be, a relevant career. I took a Digital Marketing MINI MBA class at Rutgers some time back, and I loved it and the thought of blogging was exciting to me. I felt it would be a great way to let potential employers get to know me beyond my resume. Lil was all for it too, because it keeps me busy while she’s trying to watch her favorite shows.
This blog allows me to express my talents, interests, desires, joys and sorrows.
I plan to post at least once a week. My goal is to document my career search, express opinions and ideas with topics that interest me, and I really welcome your comments and suggestions. Check in to read about my thoughts regarding pop culture, music, technology, social media, sports and life, in general. One thing I won’t be writing about – Cooking. Nope, I don’t even make toast. When I offer to cook dinner for my wife, she always finds a polite way to tell me thanks, but no thanks.
