I was born in Japan on an American Air Base when my father worked for the Air Attache in the US Embassy. Because of my father's job, I was able to see the world at a young age and be exposed to the exotic.

My father worked at the Air Attache in Djakarta, Indonesia where I saw the coupd’etat unfolding in a field in front of my house from my living room window literally.

In that same field I saw a human being buried wrapped in a sheet. A very heavy impression on the mind of a six year old.

my fatherMy father retired from the Air Force the next year, 1966 and we returned to New York where I lived after my father had returned to Tokyo, Japan.

My family joined him there after my father set up a language school and my sisters and I went to International Catholic schools at the time.

I would eventually work for my father’s language school after I separated from the Air Force years later, where I finished my education.

Life was becoming interesting as I returned to Japan to begin a career as an English teacher in 1982 and continues to today.

I had been living and working in Tokyo where I was asked to preside as a wedding officiant for non-traditional weddings, what the Japanese call (well, we do too) White Weddings.

I received my Ordination from the American Marriage Ministries and continue to officiate over Weddings here in the New York City area where I often feel I found my true calling in life.

My Mission statement is this: I support Marriage Equality and Strength for two People to form this Bond of Bliss. I will do my Utmost to fulfill this.
