I’ll give the obligatory “list” of stuff below that I’ve been involved with, places I’ve worked, and things that I and the teams I’ve worked with have been able to achieve… But in a nutshell, here’s me…
I’m passionate about relationships- my wife, kids, grandkids, family & friends! I’m far from perfect, but I have a personal relationship with Jesus who offers me grace & helps me grow! I love being a part of a team that changes lives, and the points people to Jesus. Mentoring is a passion! I love to laugh, listen to every kind of music available. I want to help make my world a better place each day, by doing good things & making a positive impact on my world by being the best servant leader I can be.
