About me

I'm a happily married, fifty-something bureaucrat living in the Maryland suburbs of DC. My interests and passions include:
  • Italy and anything pertaining to the Italian language and culture, which were passed down to me by my wonderful parents. Though I am a loyal citizen of the USA, a piece of my heart remains in Italy, not only because of the loved ones who still reside there, but also because of its richness in culture, art, history, music, food (and wine!) and natural beauty. 
  • Politics: My views are generally (though hopefully not obnoxiously) conservative.
  • Christian theology and apologetics. I am inspired by I Peter 3:15: “But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.”
The last item is just a subset of what I hope will always prove to be my greatest passion: to live for the One to whom I owe everything, Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory.
