See you at the Russian Festival 19-21 October 2018!

God has blessed me with countless opportunities for personal growth and enjoyment of life. The purpose of this site is to share with you the many, many positive experiences which I have had over the years. I also have a few needs. I am also accepting donations through PayPal. Please see the bottom of the page.

Starting with July 2013 I will again start loading photographs to this site. However, they will not be full size. If you need a full size of a photo, please e-mail me. .

Uploading pages has been a very slow process in the past.  In October 2017 I switched from Verizon to Comcast and there was a drastic difference in speed. Instead of Dreamweaver, I use BlueGriffon.  This is like using OpenOffice instead of Micro$oft Word. 

For the record, I am also a community chaplain through the Baltimore Police Department.  This is a voluntary position but it is really very rewarding.  Baltimore has some fantastic police officers.  We always hear about the bad ones, but we never see the good ones.

If you see any errors, please bring them to my attention.

You can now sign my guest book.

Now Greeks and Antiochians do not ask me if I'm a full deacon..I'm overwhelmed by the love and support of my Orthodox and Catholic brothers and sisters.
