Rich Tenaglia is a native of Columbus, Ohio and a long term resident of Westerville. A metallurgical engineer by profession, his career has focused on developing innovative ways to process metals, including work at Battelle, LSP Technologies, Edison Welding Institute, Ashland Chemical, and presently Tosoh SMD in Grove City.
For relaxation, he enjoys playing trombone in the Scioto Valley Brass and Percussion Company. A member of The Ohio State University Marching Band Alumni, he was profoundly moved and honored by the opportunity to perform with TBDBITL alumni at the 2015 D-Day ceremonies at the Brittany American Cemetery and the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial overlooking Omaha Beach.
Rich has a spiritual passion for the night sky and a serious love of sunrises, sunsets, and rainbows. Portia’s Revelation is his debut novel, and he plans to continue creative writing in retirement.
