About Me

I enjoy meeting new people to learn about their culture, engaging in intellectual conversations and sharing life experiences. I sell commercial and industrial lighting, found my life partner and am a father to 2 girls and boy. I've been lucky enough to travel a great deal through my military experience (US Marine Corp - Oorah!) and always looking for new places to explore.

Music, Movies, and Books

History related novels and movies/documentaries.

Favorite book: Gone With the Wind, just finished a biography on Andrew Jackson and am now reading John Adams

I'm a fan of most music, especially reggae. Any live music is enjoyable and I go see local shows as often as I can.
