Favorite CPI Memory

My best memory of all is the collective experience of meeting so many wonderful people who are committed to caring for others. Every class is an affirmation of my belief in the power of positive people.

Fun Facts
  • Although my studying to become a high school Spanish teacher was a goal never realized, working for CPI has given me the privilege and honor of using my language skills to teach Intervención No-Violenta en Crisis in Costa Rica and in Puerto Rico.
  • Life as a Global Professional Instructor suits me perfectly, as I love to teach AND to travel every chance I get. (And when I’m lucky, my wife joins me on my journeys.)
  • Traveling for CPI, I’ve been “screeched in” as an honorary Newfoundlander; experienced the “Far North” in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada; taught classes in Ireland and Scotland; hiked in Alaska; and have taught classes in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
