Welcome to Life in HD, the blog and podcast that examines how we live our lives. I have been curious about life and people for as long as I can remember. What makes us do the things we do…why we decide to live life a certain way…how our choices impacts us as family members, employees, and citizens.
I was born and raised in Baltimore, MD but now reside in the Syracuse, NY area. I’ve spent the last 30 years of my career in public broadcasting where I’ve met hundreds of interesting professionals, community members and news-makers. The Life in HD podcast will explore ways for us to take on life’s challenges, live better lives, and contribute positively to the communities that we live in. My guests are experts in their fields who want to share their experience and expertise with us so that we can reach our full potential. They will often take on themes like health and community engagement.
The Blog contains posts that feature personal stories of growth and observation of life in general that help me make sense of the world.
Finally, The Making of a Miscreant is a collection of stories from my youth growing up in Baltimore, MD. They are true urban stories, with minor embellishments, of key events in my life that I believe have had a profound impact on who I am today. They speak to mischief, recklessness, economic fragility and adventure and I hope that you enjoy them. The Memoir page contains posts devoted to other memories and experiences in my life.
Thank you for listening and reading, and joining me on this journey.

Wow! I’m honored Mark! Thanks for the confidence boost!
It’s the least I can do for a guy who almost died as a kid as many times as you did, Joe. 🙂
