Tell us about what you're doing with your life.
While I always keep busy working as a senior brand manager at B&G Foods and running after my 2 kids, my true passion of late has been the publishing of my first book called Dan's Dumb Decision. It is a fun children's book with a moral to the story ("never run away from home").

I actually wrote the book almost 30 years ago as part of a 5th grade English assignment. Now with my own children Christian and Brooke growing up, it felt like a good time to share it with others.

The book is a true family effort. Original inspiration from my mother, current inspiration from my wife and children, and wonderful illustrations from my father-in-law, Pedro Anlas.

The book is available as an E-book through www.authorhouse.com,www.bn.com, and www.amazon.com ($3.99 currently). Currently considering sharing some of the book profits to help aid local educational programs and initiatives.
