Thanks for stopping into my corner of the website (don’t mind the mess, it’s the anti-virus software’s week off). Any-who my wife, Wendy, has tolerated me since 2011 and seems to be in it for the long haul despite the urging of her family, friends and random strangers she meets while walking down the street with me. I am a proud father of The Boy and The Girl. The Boy is a Marine and The Girl is a future engineer of sorts. They are both sarcastic, funny, and incredibly smart (not sure where they picked up the latter). My family and I have called Mid-Michigan home for nearly my entire life. East Lansing will always hold a special place in my heart as MSU is the finest institution to ever ask me to go home. When I’m not working I enjoy new gadgets and anything techy, golf (although I’ve hit more houses than I have greens) and intentionally getting lost on my motorcycle.
