I am Rich Pawly, a 37 year old father of 4 and husband of a beautiful Filipina. I am the CTO (Chief Technical Officer) of a telecommunications company here in the United States. Between work and leisure I’m on the web about 5-10 hours a day. In my off time, I spend time with family and play golf.
My children’s ages range from 2-18 and their personalities run the gamut as well
There is Kristeen Virginia Pawly, age 18 and getting ready to leave for college at Pace University in NYC as a freshman. Studying Liberal Arts hoping to be in either politics or the entertainment industry. We hope she succeeds at everything she sets out to do.
Next up is Richard Thomas Pawly V, age 17 and entering his senior year at Miami Beach High School. He is a honor student and taking college level courses. His aspirations are to go to a good school with a excellent technical program. He has been full on into computers and such since he could walk and would stand next to my desk, peeking at what I was doing.
Dante Bolton is 3rd in the pecking order, age 11 and doing well in school also. He loves basketball and follows the NBA religiously. He spends his free time watching basketball or playing video games on his PSP or Wii.
Pulling up the rear is Matthew Conner Pawly, age 2 ½ and the handful that one would expect from a 2 year old. He runs around the house talking about cars, books, coloring, the cat, Elmo, Thomas and Bob the builder. He is in the process of learning his alphabet, numbers, colors, Tagalog, and has about a 80 word vocabulary in English, reading wise. We work on it daily with him. We have also started the dreaded process of potty training Lord Give us Strength!!
Last, but definitely not least, is my loving wife Vanessa Libre Pawly. We met a little over 8 years ago in Beijing, and she fell hard …… the rest is as they say history. She was born and raised in Mati, the capital of Davao Oriental, about 2 ½ hours drive northeast of Davao City. Went to college in Cebu and then left the country to pursue a career in entertainment business as a singer. Which is when we met.
We are working hard to get to the Philippines and retire ASAP. Which leads me to this Blog. Enjoy.
