It was his own experience with his 2 daughters, ages 28 and 9 that has heightened his awareness to the challenges faced by men seeking to establish or maintain parental relationships when there is a divorce or separation. This knowledge is the catalyst for the formation of Fathers Incorporated and the future publishing of “When The Tear Won't Fall.”

In 2003, he created Father's Incorporated (FI). The organization provided the platform necessary to explore the work of responsible fatherhood on a local and national level. Father's Inc. was created not only to help dads navigate the child support system, deal with custody issues and become responsible fathers, it focused on helping to reaffirm the benefit of fatherinvolvement. FI's main focus was on the development of fathers of all ages and the importance of understanding parental responsibility.
