Who am I?


I’m a follower of Christ, a happily married guy with 4 (in all) great kids and 7 wonderful grand kids! I enjoy traveling around this great country in our RV one state at a time with my wonderful wife and two dogs. I’m an IT Consultant and a Musician (I play guitar and bass) and I enjoy board games, hiking and exploring new places. I have a passion for technology but also know and realize the importance of ‘down time’ and being disconnected and enjoying life and serving others.
