A Little About Me

Sure I love to camp, hike, travel, explore, etc. However, my day to day activities and interests outside of work tend to focus on three areas: family, surf and jiu-jitsu.

I Love My Family

My family is my world. They are my muse, purpose and reason I work as hard as I do.

I Love Surfing

Next to my children, I feel closest to God, nature and myself when I am on the water.

I Love Brazilian Jiu-jitsu

I love the mental and physical challenge of BJJ. Its a chess match for the soul.
