This is a promo photo of me at the lake, in Roger Park, on Chicago's northside. I'm wearing a fedora-type hat, dressed in a grey vest, striped white and purple shirt with a purple tie.

Joseph Anthony Rulli: I am a transplanted Hoosier, living in Chicago since the fall of 2006. A 1987 graduate of the University of Notre Dame (BA, History) and a 1992 graduate of St. Meinrad School of Theology (MDiv) and ordained priest, I taught Social Studies, Religion, Philosophy and History at the elementary and high school level in addition to overseeing administrations in two Catholic parishes in northeastern Indiana.  I began writing as a career upon my arrival to my second city and have numerous rejection letters and "no reply received" notations under my belt! I am proud of those, as they have helped me reach my personal and writing successes.
