I grew up in Brooklyn, NY, the middle child of three boys. My favorite thing in the world was to play baseball. I played all the way through college, and one year for a minor league farm team. Although I thought I’d be playing baseball my entire life, I was hit with an unexpected injury which put an end to my dream of becoming a Major League Baseball player. Fortunately I was young enough where I could finish my college career, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. To all who ask, I am a Civil Engineer by profession, but am an advisor by vocation. The Lord has a funny way of putting us where we belong, doesn’t He?
