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 tear up the dirt trails with my 2019 KTM XC-W 300 TPI.

My perfect day

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