I was born in Williamson, WV. My first 18 years were split between living in West Virginia and then in Central New York. It was at the end of my first year at Syracuse University that I trusted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
I met my wife Dezra at Bible College where we earned Bachelor of Science degrees with dual majors in Bible and Intercultural Studies/Counseling. I then worked on “Wall Street” for 33 years. I traded exchange listed derivatives and stocks, and worked for small firms and big firms. We have been married for 35 years and have lived in Princeton since 1992. We have a wonderful daughter, son-in-law, and two grandkids. My in-laws live with us. They are great examples of faithfulness to God. Currently, four generations live in our home.
