Hi everyone!!!

It’s a great day today and everyday. Some of you may know already but, for the rest of you, I got married again on March 4, 2006.

My new wife’s name is Amy and with her comes a daughter, Haley, who is 13. So, I become an instant stepdad of a teenage girl. LOL. It’s actually been a very enlightening experience.

I created a Wedding website for us which you can find at On it, you’ll find pictures of our new family as well as Wedding and Honeymoon pictures. I’ve been making updates often so, check back often to see the latest pictures.

What else is new? Well, I’m moving to Elk Grove Village. Amy and I bought a great house to consolidate our families into. It’s a sweet place with lots of room to grow and also for us to entertain. We’ll be having gatherings as much as we can. 🙂

On other fronts, I have a new job. I like to cram all of the good things in my life into one big mass. I won’t give details here since the name of my new company isn’t public knowledge and my current employer has access to this site. Yes, they already know about the change. Apparently, the service that my new company used to do reference checking slipped up and sent a report to my current employer instead of the new employer.

My current employer, Pathfinder Associates, is being very cool and professional about my change. I greatly appreciate that fact and have only good things to say about the organization as a whole.

So, why am I leaving them? The new opportunity was one of those situations where I just couldn’t see not taking the chance. The stars all seemed in line for this change. In my past, all of the great changes in my life have come around the same time as other monumental changes. For example, Noah was born the day after I started working for Whittman-Hart (W-H) and W-H was a great job change for me that lasted 7.5 years.

The new job offers me a change in the work I do which gives my mind the variety I need to thrive. Plus, it’s better pay, benefits, work environment, and closer to the trains. On top of it all, I was approached for the job by a former co-worker and respected work associate of W-H. After I talked to him, I found out, I will be working with 6 or more former W-H work associates, all of whom I respect. Overall, the change feels good.

Anyway, enough news for now. Please drop me a line with any of the happenings in your lives.

Ciao for now,
