If you see a guy walking around Cincinnati singing Edelweiss, that’d be me. My youngest daughter Xela is rehearsing for her part as Gretl in the upcoming production of The Sound of Music.

About a month ago we made the decision to leave Cincinnati and head to Southeast Asia in the spring. We love the city of Cincinnati and the friends and relationships we’ve developed here. My wife and I are still young enough to enjoy (and remember) the places we want our children to see, and we’re… Continue reading Goodbye (for now) to Downtown Cincinnati
