Why do you do what you do?
I have always been a helper. Being able to use my talents on such a large scale to help someone struggling, or a community in need, is personally fulfilling.
When I'm Not Working, I'm usually…
Enjoying time with my wife and son, talking football with my son, and working in the garage and yard. I also enjoy building and creating new things- whether on paper/canvas or out of materials in the garage.
