The one thing I am passionate about...
Patriotism. I get "goose bumps" listening to war vets tell stories, conversing about the courage of individuals like Martin Luther King, FDR, Lincoln, Jesse Owens, Jackie Robinson and all the others who've contributed, sacrificed, and prevailed in the face of adversity. They added just what the country needed at just the right time.
I typically spend my leisure time
Well lately I haven't had much. My career is demanding. I try to make the most of every minute that I have with may children. Occasionally, I'll break away and ride my Harley for a while. I like watching movies when I can and I like to shoot pool.
The most influential person in my life has been
Originality. I think someone who is courageous enough to not confine themselves to the status quo brings alot of things to the table. Usually a person like this is honest with others because they are honest with themselves. It is exciting to be around someone unique. Someone who stands out from the crowd.
The first thing people notice about me
Most people think that I'm younger than I really am. Even though I'm very mature, I smile alot even in situations most people would not. I guess that gives them the impression that few things bother me, which is probably true. I also have kind of a swagger when I walk.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"The Taking", By Dean Koontz. I won't give it away, but it is about a young couple who live in a California mountain town. Stange things begin to happen with weather across the Globe. They find themselves cut off from the rest of civization. The young couple and their neighbors find that there is something out there, evil, and it hunting hunting humans. They wonder if the human race is on the brink of extinction.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- That entrance into heaven is through the Lord our savior and not by our actions.
- My children.
- The trials and tribulations that have brought me to this point in my life.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am very confident in my abilities and sometimes people don't realize how much work I put into a project or task because when I've completed it, it is very polished and precise. I will spend my own time off the job to accomplish something.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I'm a pretty good sketch artist and a bit of a poet. I wish Chis Farley was still alive.
