This is Joey, my dear sweet husband and Tania's daddy. Joey grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. He went to public school, but dropped out when he was in the tenth grade. He earned his Graduation Equivalent Diploma a few years later. He's had a little bit of college, but hasn't gotten his degree yet. He is starting college again this fall, and hopes to earn a degree in Literature.
Speaking of literature, Joey is probably the biggest reader of literature that I have ever known. He reads everything from the classics to Bukowski to Henry Miller to Kurt Vonnegut. He's my encyclopedia of writers and books. He has us going to the library every couple of weeks at least.
Joey is also a music buff. He played the trumpet in school, and was in the school's marching band. (I married a nerd.) He also plays the guitar, and is self-taught. He likes all kinds of music: Indie, hip-hop, rap, emo, 60s rock, classical, and I'm sure I didn't name them all. He's one of those guys who knows what every single song on the radio is.
Joey also likes crossword puzzles, chess, hiking, and in-depth conversations over a shared pitcher of cold ale. He's one of those people who has a really easy time making new friends, because he's really friendly and totally unpretentious. Can you tell that I love this guy?
Joey really wants to contribute to Tania's education. He has been really supportive of all the conclusions I have made about her education, and has read every book that I have passed on to him about homeschooling.
