The most amazing moment in my life so far
The birth of my daughter. Then meeting my second wife. Then deciding to teach mathematics as a career. Then discovering my love for Italy.
I live a great life filled with the love of close friends and family. I live in a lovely environment in Woodstock, NY, and have been traveling to Italy at least once or twice a year since 1992. I am some sort of "expert" in Italian travel and have produced my cable TV show Alan's Italy on Woodstock Public Access Television since December 2011. I assist people with their trips, lecture on places I have been, write books on my travels, write two blogs, and upload videos of all my shows on Youtube. I have been teaching mathematics in college for 32 years and served as a high school teacher and supervisor for 34 years. Teaching mathematics has been the joy of my life, and I would like to continue until for health reasons I am no longer able. I just finished a book on my career of 42 years. I have been blessed with good health, excellent luck, and the good fortune to realize my dreams over and over. In fact no luckier man ever existed.
