Fun Facts

In my free time, I like with my family and have lots of fun together experiencing new things.

The best advice I’ve ever received remember to intentionally embrace the presence of God, family (broad term), and neighbors/community, as often as possible.

People might be surprised to know...that I am a country boy at heart and I love gardening/yard-work, although I love to wear nice suits and bowties, otherwise.
