My wife, Jenny, is my best friend. She is a high school English teacher, and the perfect role model for our three daughters, and son: our oldest, Josie, and our twins, Jax and Penny, and our youngest Cash. They are my life. I spend most of my free time with them, my brothers, sister, parents, 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.
