I 'd say that it took me a long time to grow up and find myself. I feel like I'm just now peaking in my personal maturity. Still have that little craving to save the world.

Still fond memories of the community we formed. Never matched in my life so far.

I'm still building upon the "foundation" from the Louisville days, lots of good memories that carry me forward.

Working in the print shop with Jim Bobula, Jim Ryan, Mike Owens, Harry Watson, etc. got "ink" in my blood which continues today... I also continue to "barber" the local community, though "the hairs of our heads are numbered"... The occasional golf at Bellarmine's par 3 has blossomed into full-course golf, with a current handicap of 17!

Bellarmine College, B.A. Graduate studies at Catholic Theological Union, University of Louisville.

University of Louisville, Urban Studies Center 1972-1982.I started as a research assistant and over the years learned survey research methodology under some very bright people. In 1978 I became Director of Public Opinion Research. In 1982 I left the University to start Horizon Research International, a market research firm now in its 23rd year of operation. I serve as President.

Married Sue Curl a 1970 graduate of Bellarmine College. We married in April of 1974. We have two children, Matthew, 26 and Michael 22.

Ironic that we called that time formation--because the experience and the people certainly helped to form me in a number of significant ways. I reconnected with the Passionist Community about six years ago and have served on a few of their lay boards. They are taking some exciting and innovative steps that could well be the model for religious communities of the future. I have enjoyed it.

So many things to remember. Our graduation picture, used on our invitation (on the Sundance Kid motif) was particularly memorable. If I can find it I will post it.
