About Me


"Love the life you live, Live the life you love!"


I spend half my time working in a woodshop repairing and building furniture. I spend the other half of my time establishing our homestead on the New River. We have a beautiful 7 acres that we hope to eventually be self-sufficient on. Currently, we are building a greenhouse. In the spring, we will have little piggies.

When I have free time, I like to read, sketch, and spend time outdoors messing around in the garden. It seems most of the time is spent taking care of various projects around the land.


There are no coincidences, just intentional, purposeful happenings.
