Personal Memory

My favorite memories involve family, the Royals and outdoors. At the top of the list would be the two months my wife and I spent in the UK. While there, we got involved with a few different faith communities, saw many sites around the island, and basically had the time of our lives. I can’t wait to go back some day.


I love being outdoors. Camping, fishing, gardening, playing sports, and herpetology are among my outdoor hobbies. When I can’t be outside, I really like spending time training in martial arts and playing video games.
