I was married in 1990 to my beautiful wife Linda and have been in the B2B media business since 1984. I have worked for Penton, Hanley-Wood, Putman BNP, Cygnus, Smart Business, Leisure Media 360, Endeavor Business Media, and saved the best for last with Lessiter Media. We have two great kids, and our daughter is getting married this September in Germany, while my son lives in Arizona and is getting married next August in Maine. We have two black English labs named Bear and Bella. We lived in Connecticut, Illinois and now reside in Roanoke, VA. I love watching baseball and going to Salem, Va., to watch the Salem Red Sox. My other passion is fishing, and the biggest walleye I have ever caught was a 24-inch 4+ pounder.
