Doug, a photographer/ slash teacher/ slash motivational speaker, was raised by penguins following a childhood boating accident. He graduated from high school with an astounding GPA of 74 and that was only because he could throw a baseball over 90mph. His SAT scores, while not perfect, were very appropriate for his efforts. He continued his education with a one night class at Suffolk Community College, where he both learned that not all issues can be reduced to black or white and received his best sleep of his life, as he describes it.
While in his grueling, one class semester of night college, he continued his growth as wedding photographer (and chubby guy) who knew how to swerve with the ladies, including the love of his life, his beautiful wife, Vim. Now married for almost 13 years, he lectures frequently to his children on a variety of subjects, including, but not limited get into Disney restaurants without a reservation, while making up a great story. . He enjoys the misery of his favorite baseball team, the NY Mets, as well as watching Halle Berry and fishing, despite the painful memories.
