Working from Home Allows SOT’s Editor to Do More, Live Better

Family, teaching and home-based hobbies maximize time invested in each.

Signs of the Times

Balance for me is key, as for one, I’ve also been a part-time English teacher at the University of Cincinnati for 33 years. Working from home for both that and SOT  helps! My wife Alison and I eat lunch together every day, watching a comedy such as The Office. We have two grown daughters — Alex and Maddy — both married, and a brand new grandson. I like to cook and do most nights, including Tuesdays when we host my mother-in-law. Consuming beer is one of my favorite hobbies, as is visiting a friend Sunday afternoons for football, golf, Bar Rescue and joking around. I follow soccer most closely and the team I’ve supported for a dozen years, Manchester City, are — you say “are” in the UK — the current champions of both England and Europe. I spend most evenings streaming documentaries, though strangely, not movies. At times I’ll spend half an hour trying to find something to watch and settle on nothing.
