I hold a PhD in Organizational Communication & Instructional Communication from The Ohio University in Athens, OH. I taught communication courses and coached speech and debate teams at several colleges and universities for 25 years. It was extremely challenging and rewarding. Recently I moved to of the traditional university setting and took a position at the US Marine Corps University's Expeditionary Warfare School where I teach Marine Corps Captains to be better communicators. I find that I enjoy working with goal oriented adult learners (all possessing college degrees) and the challenges of curriculum revision. 


I married a wonderful women named Lori Spicka (Holm) in 1988 and we had a baby boy in 1994 and named him Marcus. However, she passed away in the fall of 2006). As you can imagine it was an emotionally draining time. I really hit an emotion rock bottom. But then I met someone who showed me it was possible to not just carry on but once again be happy.  I owe my new life to my new wife Jennifer Baader (Holm) and cannot imagine what my life would be like if she hadn't found me. My son Marcus is a wonderful young man who will no doubt accomplish much in his life.  My favorite hobby is woodworking, specifically turning pieces on a wood lathe.  If you have time you should check out my wood working galleries.
