What you may not know about me

Is that I was born in Nebraska and grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I am now a Texan by choice. Although, I would love to move to Colorado during the hot, humid summers.

What I really like to do is

Spend time with my family and friends, study the bible, travel, watch movies, play basketball, and ride my Toro Commercial Zero-Turn Radius Mower.

My perfect day

Would be hearing God say, “You did good with the life I gave you.”
