I've always felt that I could never know enough. Throughout my life my desire to write was fueled by my curiosity, my desire to learn and the satisfaction derived from sharing knowledge with others. I've had many teachers along the way - both formal and informal - and I owe much of what I know to them. And so, I write about things that I've experienced, things that I've learned, and pursuits I've tried to master. I write in order to share what I know with others and to help them on their way.
My writing reflects my varied interests. Yes, I've been a businessman, but I've also been a musician. I was a military intelligence analyst, but I also taught music to children.
I write technical works for the real estate industry, but I also write poetry and songs. I've taught computer software, but I've also taught guitar and voice. I write about all these things, and everything I write is meant to be shared.
My writing is meant to serve the people that need what I have written.
I hope you find what you need here.
"Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it:
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
My practical experience in real estate, coupled with a degree in education, lead me to become a real estate educator. I've worked in every phase of the business, and I've taught thousands of people over the years. My books, pamphlets, computer programs and online courses are based on years of experience in the field and in the classroom.
A clear understanding of real estate math, and especially the use of the HP12c calculator and Microsoft Excel served me well as a Real Estate Broker and Loan Officer. My technical writing and programming on these subjects has served students as well as real estate investors to achieve their goals.
In addition to my B.A. in Music Education, I received a Masters Degree in Opera Performance. I recorded a CD, "An American Tenor in China" in 2003. I have studied the Bel Canto method of singing and I have performed many opera roles over the years, including having the opportunity to sing at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. I've been a guitarist and singer/songwriter for most of my adult life. As a writer, I'll be publishing my original books on guitar and voice on this site, and via Amazon.
I have written works of fiction and non-fiction, and intend to write much more. Some of those works will be published here, and others will be published on Amazon.
