About Me
I am a single father of two young boys (13 and 11 years old). I worked for the Harvard Office of Technology Development as the Sr. Associate Director of Operations and Administration for 12 years. My wife passed away from cancer 7 years ago. From September 2018 through September 2019, I traveled around the world with my two boys. Now, I'm reinventing myself and my life, and my home is available for rent.
