About The Great Dain!

For many of the projects that I do, I could not accomplish them without my best friend, boyfriend and husband, Dain. We share ideas and concepts about presentations, projects, and processes. He carries my boxes of supplies in and out of cars, parking lots and buildings. He uses tools (i.e., saws!) that I dare not ever use! He is a great engineer and architect and makes magic in so many ways! And without him, my computer (and subsequently all the work I do!) would not exist!!

Dain was born in Queens, New York a few years ago, and grew up there. Upon attaining his business degree from the University of Toledo, he spent several years as an officer in the Army and lived in Germany. After that, he accepted a job from Ohio Bell (Ameritech/ SBC/AT&T) and that is where we met in 1979. He also has an MBA from Baldwin Wallace. Now a days, he helps and supports me; he works part-time for UBS as a financial support person; he teaches PSR and Confirmation in our parish of Saint Francis Xavier; and he is the treasurer of our town house association. He spends time with me and Richard, his son, who previously danced professional classical and contemporary ballet and now is a make-up and special effects artist living in L.A.

In his spare time, he sleeps! Ha! Just kidding! He reads a lot, takes care of home repairs, our financial affairs, and achieved a Master Catechist certificate with the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland. He also cooks, shops and cleans. And he is an accomplished photographer.

He is truly the wind beneath my wings! And I am so happy to be married to such a great guy!!

Thank you Dain for all of your support and love!

The Great Dain!
