I have a wife, two kids, two cats, two dogs and a mental illness. They all require constant attention and care.
I do not abide political/policy bullies, and I enjoy provocative debate and pointing out when I think the emperor has no clothes.
I am a former newspaper reporter and editor. I am also a self-described political junkie and enjoy few things more than observing and writing about my hometown’s complex, vibrant and often comical political structure.
Today, I make my living as a strategic communications consultant, helping a wide range of clients — from Fortune 500 companies to small non-profit organizations and municipalities — find solutions to complex challenges.
I am also an out-of-the-closet consumer of mental health services, and was hospitalized more than 19 times between 1982 and 1998 for wide range of mental health issues that include depression, anxiety and schizophrenia.
Today, my illness is relatively well-managed, and I have become a public advocate, working to raise awareness about the impacts of mental illness and its stigma by serving as a panelist, guest speaker and an op-ed writer in several forums throughout New England.
I have two file cabinets of unfinished manuscripts, and I believe you are defined by your dreams, not your limitations.
