Writer, Dad, Musician, Gardener...Not Necessarily in that Order

I am a writer by nature. It's always been how I express myself best.

I’ve been writing stories, journals, songs, and poems since I could pick up a pencil, but it took me 20-odd years to figure out that I could get paid for it. Call me slow. And now, I'm a professional writer.

For the past 13 years, I have also been a full-time, work-at-home Dad. My imaginary staff and I handle the logistics and complexities of life for a home and three children, supported by a talented and loving wife, who has a real job.

In between, I'm CEO, CMO, CFO, and CCO (Chief Cleaning Officer) for SDG Communications, a marketing consultancy serving clients in Israel and abroad. In my spare time, I'm an avid guitar player, and even perform occasionally...

 

More About Me...

sdg smallI was born in 1967 near Austin Texas, and grew up uneventfully in Fort Wayne, Indiana - birthplace of Shelly Long, and fictional home of the M*A*S*H character Frank Burns, among others. When you grow up in a place like Fort Wayne, any claim to fame is important...

After completing my BA at Indiana University - during the course of which I also studied at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Haifa University - I emigrated to Israel only months before the first Gulf War, in August 1990. In between planeloads of immigrants from the former Soviet Union, I was given an Israeli ID card and a gas mask, in that order. I'm still not sure which one these ultimately produced greater headaches.

In 1996, I was drafted into the Israel Defense Forces, where I evenutally served for 12 years in active Reserves duty, most of it on the Syrian border in the Golan Heights - which is consequently now one of my favorite places in the world.

In 1998, I was married to the wonderful woman who changed my life for the better in so many ways, and in 2001, only a month after the 9/11 attacks, my son was born, followed by my twin daughters in 2004.

Since 2002, I’ve worked as an independent marketing writer, copywriter and consultant. But mostly, I'm a full-time Dad. My imaginary staff and I handle the logistics and complexities of family life, and my wife thankfully has a real job.

Oh yes, and in my spare time, I write books.
