Hey, I'm Jerry!
Detroit, Michigan, United States · Member since November 2011

There is a time in one's life that is often a turning point-but only if you realize it. I have experienced this turning point. It is awesome. As a result, I am grateful for everything I have been blessed with--thanks be to God!

I'm Canadian and grew up just outside of Niagara Falls, Ontario in Welland, known for the Welland Canal which links Lake Erie and Lake Ontario for ship travel bypassing the Falls.

I moved to Michigan as a result of an early automotive career path after college and have lived in the "D" for nearly 20 years.

I'm a believer in the City of Detroit. I like the vibe of the city, the numerous attractions from the world class DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts), to the amazing architecture and history, to the great ethnic enclaves such as Greektown, Mexican Village and the Polish flavor of Hamtramck, to the exciting sports teams (Red Wings, Tigers and even Lions nowadays.)

My outlook on life is full of ambition, idealism and integrity. I'm an adjunct faculty member at Wayne State University and love to teach as well as thrive upon the people and energy on campus.
I also provide institutional fixed income vehicles for portfolios of credit unions, banks, money managers, cities & municipalities and other large asset based groups looking to improve yield yet mitigate risk.

I enjoy eating all types of ethnic, organic and health food and so does my little mini-daschund/chihuahua girl Gigi.

My main hobbies include animals/pets (fostering and rescuing over 25 dogs over the past few years), dinner parties, Ukrainian culture and my favorite sports are playing basketball, squash, golf, as well as spinning and working out/gym. Though, you don't have to twist my arm to go to any live sporting event...

(***By the way, I speak Ukrainian---the languages tab did not provide this choice, so I picked Russian, which has similarities.)

I love and adore my family and am proud of my roots. I'm a revert back to Catholicism and am a faithful and devout parishioner at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. By the way, the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament where Archbishop Allan Vigneron resides is only one block away.

The neighborhood I reside in is known as the Historic Boston-Edison District with many well known famous former residents such as Henry Ford (the Ford Motor Company founder--his first mansion is just down the street), Berry Gordy, (founder of Motown Records), Clara Clemens, daughter of Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), etc.

I look forward to providing you with a comfortable and enjoyable stay while you're in Motown.

Cheers!
