My Bio (Boring)

     It is hard to believe but they actually give out awards like this.  I worked for a great guy, Tom Parks and had great students at F.M.U. So it was easy getting this award.  The real reward is seeing my students becoming successful.

But here are the vital statistics:
        Born October 5, 1952, Lorain, Ohio    
(By my math, that makes me 36 years old)
Never married, no kids.  (Doesn't  seem to surprise 
many people.)
Graduated: 
Eastern Kentucky University 1974 with B.S.
Wayne State University Law School 1978 with J.D.
           Licensed to practice law in the State of 
Florida and U.S. Middle District of Florida in 
1980.
           Licensed to practice law in the State of 
Ohio and U.S. Northern District of Ohio in 2003
