A Quick Bit About Me

My wife, Jenny, is my best friend. She is a high school English teacher, and the perfect role model for our three daughters: our oldest, Josie, and our twins, Jax and Penny. These four girls are my life.

I spend most of my free time with these girls, my brothers, sister, and cousins.

Anything I can get my hands on and learn about I'm interested in. I am currently teaching myself how to code, and this was the focus of my master's capstone project.

I would also enjoy working to improve my Spanish.
