Fam & Friends

I have an amazing wife and four children who teach me many things every day. Friends make life enjoyable. These relationships enrich my life.

Code

I like to build things, especially in code. I'll build you a website if you want - or do database work or data mining.

mylife

Photography

I like to photograph things like people, landscapes, and the night sky.

mylife

Sports

NFL football is the best. College is good, too. I watch all big games. I watch NBA and MLB playoffs. I also enjoy the final round at a Major golf tournament. Wish I wasn't horrible at golf.

mylife

Movies & Music

I'm a big fan of seeing movies, especially in a theater. I also like music. I play the piano and the drums - although I need to get a drum set again. I like to listen to lots of different kinds of music, especially music I think would be hard to play on the drums or guitar.

mylife

Travel

I think it's important to see different people and countries of the world. Haven't been everywhere yet, but I enjoyed where I've been.
