About Me

CURRENT MISSION
I have an amazing wife and 3 beautiful children. I work to live and live to work. But when it is time to play I play hard! I am a very easy going open minded guy who likes doing just about everything.
Someday when I am told that I only have "X" amount of time to live I want to be able to look at my life and see that I have done everything I ever wanted or dreamed of doing.

ABOUT ME

I am a very open minded person.... I love learning new things.... I love traveling an meeting new people.... I have lived all over the state of michigan as well as a few other states.... I was in foster care when I was 15-17 because my mom was incapable of caring for me...I am married with 3 beautiful little munchkins...

PHILOSOPHY

I am a very open minded person, even if I don't agree with you I will not be angry but will be open for a good conversation if you are as well.

I live my life to help kids that are at-risk.... I come from this background and anything i can do to help them not make bad choices is what I love to do......
