Joe, Maria, Joey, Sarah, Joshua and of course Tanner!

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh. I am married to Maria, my best friend and wife of 31 years.  We live in Oakmont, Pennsylvania where we have raised our three wonderful children, Joey 26, Sarah 24 and Joshua 20.  We are active members of Saint Irenaeus Parish in Oakmont. 

The twists and turns of my journey have twice led me to set out independently on a self-employed path.  My corporate career as a recruiter, training and development specialist, along with an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh’s Katz Graduate School of Business, prompted a successful venture as a professional speaker, trainer, and consultant. 

A partial client list includes:  Merrill Lynch, Verizon, Xerox, #1Cochran Automotive, Alcoa, ROBROY Industries, Pittsburgh Regional Alliance, Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce, United Way of Allegheny County, US Attorney’s Office, Promotional Products Association International, and Pennsylvania School Counselors Association.

Sensing God’s call, I went back to school completing a Masters in Religious Education at Duquesne University.  Following a ten-year career as a Director of Religious Education in the Pittsburgh and Greensburg Dioceses of the Catholic Church, I have embarked on a new direction in ministry.

This ministry, Our Journey With God, offers a variety of programs designed to equip individuals and organizations to be fully engaged on their journey with God.
