I can answer questions about keeping love in committed relationships alive and fresh. I can help couples overcome obstacles that they might encounter in their relationships and help get them back on the path to a strong, healthy, and committed partnership. I am not the guy to go to if you want to know how to meet someone. (I've never been good at opening lines.) I am dedicated to keeping the romance fires burning even after the embers of a new relationship turn cold. Let me help you find ways to be excited about each other and your relationship again.

I founded the website,, where I offer advice and give daily romance tips. I also have hosted the seminars, "Romance 101" and "The Valentine Prep Course".
