I’m in Ohio, working, creating media & music, and adapting to being an empty-nester with my wife.
My various commitments include:
Serving as Assistant Chief at the Ohio Division of State Fire Marshal, Fire Prevention Bureau. I am writing a number of lesson plans to add to the current fire and life safety education curriculum.
I’m serving as public relations chairperson for the Ohio Certified Public Manager® Society. My latest projects have included completely renovating the web site, promoting member activities and finishing final releases on the recent awards presented at the annual Leadership Conference.
I’ve recently become a member of the American Society for Public Administration.
I’m the Entertainment Chairperson for the 2016 Holiday at Home Labor Day Festival in Kettering, OH. I’m pleased to say that we have a great lineup of musicians on the roster for both Sunday and Monday this year. The schedule can be found at HolidayatHome.org.
I’m playing bass with the band Counting Skeletons. We play about twice a month at various clubs around southwest Ohio, including Dayton and Cincinnati. This is primarily 80s covers, with the occasional newer tune, esp. if it helps motivate people to dance or sing along.
We have just released an album of original songs called Super Moon. It features a great lineup of musicians who helped us with the project, including drummer Greg Goforth and singer Nyci Lorts. Drum tracks were engineered by Matt Hueneman of Cattle Dog Productions.
I’m listening to these podcasts:
Scott Devine’s The Scott’s Bass Lessons Podcast
Lee Cockerell’s Creating Disney Magic: Lessons in Leadership, Management, and Customer Service
I’m also listening to Joe Perry’s audio book Rocks on Audible. [This is not an affiliate link.]
