I have been with Detroit Mercy for six and half years. I am originally from Detroit but left the city after my wife and I married and lived in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Lewisburg, PA. I worked in medical center fundraising for 14 years and higher education fundraising for 12. I also worked for a missionary organization called Glen Mary Home Missioners. I have four children, Caroline and Marie who are 31 years old. Roman is 23 years old and Nicolette is 20 years old. Three of my children graduated from Detroit Mercy and Nicolette is completing a degree from Spring Hill College. My wife holds a social work degree from Detroit Mercy and I earned a Masters in Liberal Studies from Detroit Mercy. I am currently enrolled in a Masters of Data Analytics program. I was a firefighter and EMT in my community for three years and have a brown belt in Krav Maga (Israeli martial arts). My wife and I recently took up ballroom dancing.
