Life Beyond the Law
I enjoy teaching courses on computing and technology at Fort Dix in Central New Jersey. I find interfacing with veterans and active military personal to be a gratifying experience. I also enjoy the outdoors and taking trips with my wife and daughter. Don’t be surprised if you see me zooming by on a bicycle – where I’m going I don’t need four wheels.
