Personality:

I am married and have two children: a son who is four and a daughter who is eleven. I have lived in Wichita KS for more than twenty years. I have visited almost all major cities in US and I have lived for several years in San Diego CA, Dallas TX, and Kansas City MO. I am into reading, studying and staying fit. I love doing research on the topic of leadership. Though, I have earned a Doctorate in Management and specialized in Organizational leadership, I believe the concept of leadership is an elusive one: you know everything about it, yet you do not know what it is sometimes. I have a Master degree in Physics from WSU and published a paper in the Journal of Physics. Physics says there are only three forces that run the universe: electromagnetism force for communication, gravity for structure, and nuclear force for energy. I view life like a train has four engines two at front (media and education) and two at the back (physics and leadership).
