I was born in Waupaca Wisconsin, USA on February 5th, 1962. I have 3 brothers and one sister, Mark, Cheryl, David, (me-Brian), and little brother Robby. My childhood was difficult. I struggled to learn to read and write, and sit still in school. I went on to college against the wisdom of the day and did well. I'm now a Social Worker helping teens and families overcome their struggles. My wife Anne is a Nurse. My son John is in art school at UWO and my Beth is in Social Work school at UWSP.
